I have not seen that specific issue dealt with, but the reg is very specific that it applies to training for certificates and ratings.

Training received in a multiengine airplane, a helicopter, or a powered-lift. A flight instructor may not give training required for the issuance of a certificate or rating in a multiengine airplane, a helicopter, or a powered-lift unless that flight instructor has at least 5 flight hours of pilot-in-command time in the specific make and model of multiengine airplane, helicopter, or powered-lift, as appropriate.

The regs and FAA Chief Counsel interpretations have been very consistent that an endorsement is not a rating.
