TagSupport -- IterationTag

The JWebPlus mock exam made this statement to explain one of its answers.
TagSupport implements IterationTag. Therefore, doAfterBody() will be called if the handler extends TagSupport.

However, it looks like the default return value for the doStartTag() in TagSupport is SKIP_BODY. If doStartTag() returns SKIP_BODY, will the body then not be evaluated and the next method called would be doEndTag()???
It doesn't seem like JUST because we extend TagSupport that doAfterBody() is guaranteed to be called.
Any Ideas ???

It's not. You are precisely correct. I think I hit that one on the actual exam.
