new blog template plugin - are the templates child themes?

When using the new blog templates plugin, are the templates that I create considered to be child themes? I.e., would they retain styling when updating the parent theme on the network?

    Hey John,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    Our New Blog Templates plugin isn't only about page templates. In this case by "template" we mean an entire site so basically you create a sub-site on your network (just as any user would do) and then users can use it as a "base" or a "ready-to-go" sub-site.

    That said, such a site template includes not only themes but also plugins and other settings. This also refers to child themes and custom page/post templates, I believe.

    I hope this helps!
