Anyone know if dmin function is volatile?

More specifically if one were to use a formula for criteria with a blank column identifier versus an identified column/criteria does dmin become volatile? Having volatile type recalc/performance issues in a large worksheet with dmin criteria specified by formulas.

Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.

No.

It would only become volatile if it contained another volatile function within it. It will also become volatile if any range reference contains a volatile function, so long as it is actually executed.

DB is all fixed values, non volatile named range: h!$K$28:$V$22199

Criteria Header Column in ASV25 is blank
Criteria is specified by formula in ASV26: =AND($R29<=$ASV$24,$U29>$ASW$27))
Dmin Database function in ASV27: =DMIN(DB,11,ASV25:ASV26))

There are approximately 100 lookups in columns ASA - AVV.

Do database functions allow multiple criteria to be specified by formula?
Documentation is thin on this subject and just states any formula that is true or false.
