From xep16:

<iq/> -- blocks incoming IQ stanzas

so this means all IQ stanzas, independently of their type.

Whether or not if this is sensible is another question.

Clients wishing to perform an IQ request could switch to a temporary
privacy list (or modifying the active list) prior sending the IQ request
which allows IQs from the remote entity for the time of the request.
