Can a nonexistent time-range in an ACL be matched, and how does the rule take effect

When a time-range time-name in an ACL rule is matched, the router does not check whether the time-range time-name has been configured. Therefore, the configuration will be successful.
For a nonexistent time-range time-name, the router considers corresponding rule as invalid and sets the time-range time-name to the Inactive state.
After the time-range time-name is configured, if it is in the Active state, corresponding ACL rule is updated dynamically and changed from the Invalid state to the Valid state.
