Does Rosetta, LHC, etc work count toward prize credits?

I'm new to CE. So far I've only recieved tasks from Rosetta@home, which appears to be normal based on reading some of the questions asked in this forum. I understand from info elsewhere on CE's site that there will always be some portion of tasks from projects such as Rosetta@home. Do the work credits earned from these tasks also count towards points used in the prize drawings? Thanks.

Yes, these credits count -- As long as you've been attached the project by our sytems. 

(You can attach to any BOINC project manually, but in such case the credits will not register in CE accounting)

Thank you. The projects were attached through CE. In fact, the points showed up in my dashboard today.
