Do units that die in a shipwreck grant experience?

Whenever I destroy a ship loaded with troops or any unit, apparently it only grants the experience of the ship itself, but I think it does not grant anything with the destruction of its crew. I’m not sure if it grants experience, but if not, wouldn’t it be better for units that shipwreck to grant experience?


It would be a nice bonus for taking down a juicier target. Just one more way it would be great for the naval play to be fleshed out.
