Are fund allocations current or as intended by fund manager

Is the "Allocation Percentage" of holdings in a fund from the FundAllocationExtractionRequest endpoint in DSS reflecting the current (actual) allocation (based on current prices of the holdings) or the intended / as advertised by the fund manager?

This is the request I send for a multi asset fund

DE0008471921

to get the Allocation Percentage of each asset type in the multi asset fund

{
    "ExtractionRequest": {
        "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.FundAllocationExtractionRequest",
        "ContentFieldNames": [
            "Allocation ISIN", "Allocation Percentage", "Allocation Item"
        ],
        "IdentifierList": {
            "@odata.type": "#DataScope.Select.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",
            "InstrumentIdentifiers": [
                {
                    "Identifier": "DE0008471921",
                    "IdentifierType": "Isin"
                }
            ],
            "ValidationOptions": null,
            "UseUserPreferencesForValidationOptions": false
        },
        "Condition": {
            "FundAllocationTypes": [
                "Asset"
            ]
        }
    }
}

As a response I get

...
        {
            "IdentifierType": "Isin",
            "Identifier": "DE0008471921",
            "Allocation ISIN": null,
            "Allocation Percentage": 76.85,
            "Allocation Item": "FIXED INCOME"
        },
...

I would be interested whether 76.85% is the intended / strategic allocation by the manager or whether it is the allocation according to current prices

It seems, the fund allocation is the actual - subject to current market prices - because the DSS allocation response matches the RDP Funds API which gives the entire time series of allocations. The one returned by DSS is as of 30.9.2022
