Is the EIP (Public IP Address) Assigned to a Load Balancer Exclusive?

During the lifecycle of a classic load balancer, the assigned EIP is exclusive to it. The EIP can be released only when you delete the load balancer.

For an enhanced load balancer, the EIP is not exclusive to it. However, the EIP can be unbound. After the EIP is unbound, the load balancer becomes a private network load balancer, and the EIP can be bound to other resources.
