According to 6.7.2 [intro.object] paragraph 3,
If a complete object is created (22.214.171.124 [expr.new]) in storage associated with another object e of type “array of N unsigned char” or of type “array of N std::byte” (17.2.1 [cstddef.syn]), that array provides storage for the created object if...
However, note 4 in paragraph 13 indicates that a char array can also provide storage:
An operation that begins the lifetime of an array of char, unsigned char, or std::byte implicitly creates objects within the region of storage occupied by the array.
[Note 4: The array object provides storage for these objects. —end note]
The normative text and the note should be reconciled.
