It does, if you consider {telDaq} to have a Type 5 noun suffix.

It does not, if you consider it to be a compound {tel} "wing" + {Daq}
"location", making the phrase "wing-location brightener".

Some people try to convince themselves that it isn't a noun-noun
construction in the first place, and the rule thus does not apply, but that
seems unsupportable to me.
