Key rotation for imported key material

The tutorial says there is no automatic key rotation for Customer managed keys with imported key material. However Question$8 on the official amazon quiz for exam readiness suggests otherwise. Could you please clarify.


There is another question of Key rotation (#14). When you enable automatic key rotation for an existing CMK key where the backing key is managed by AWS, when is the key rotated?


The correct answer shown in quiz is 1 year whereas in the tutorial it says 3 years

I think you are confusing Customer Managed Keys and Customer Master Keys.  https://docs.aws.amazon.com/kms/latest/developerguide/concepts.html#master_keys
