121.485 and 121.523 specify that adequate sleeping facilities are only required when a pilot is scheduled for more than 12 hours of flying.

On the other hand, 135.269 allows a max of 12 hours aloft for a three-pilot crew, yet specifically requires adequate sleeping facilities for any crew of three or four pilots.
