Cashback for stores with fake RRPs that automatically apply discounts via codes?

For example, CashRewards state a 31.5% cashback for Rocket Languages - but with the stipulation common to many cashback sites that "Cashback will not be paid if a coupon code is used that is not listed on this site."
However following Rocket Languages for a while, they never sell at the crossed out price and always have a major discount shown on their pricing page. They apply this price reduction via a coupon code applied automatically to your cart.
So by the book, I would think cashback would be denied.
But I can't say I've ever seen the 'discount' offered by Rocket Languages to be less than the CR cashback. So I question the point of cashback for such places if that is indeed the case.
I have asked CR directly, but being holidays don't expect to hear back until Rocket Languages Easter promotion offer reverts back to their normal discount.
But would like to know generally too as it's not the first time I haven't been sure about this.
