Add Discover AU, Will Gain Account's Age?

Hi I received the offer shown in the image below ($25 after adding an AU and making a purchase). A few months ago I added my wife to my AmEx BCE and was surprised to learn that her AU account started with 0 age. That was a bummer since we were waiting to open new accounts until after our mortgage. Anyway, I just wanted to confirm that Discover behaves like normal and if I add her as an AU, a new account will be added to her credit but it won't be a "new account" (it'll take on my account's age instead of 0 age). Any info is appreciated!
