Visa 820 - 2nd Sponsorship Question!

Hi, I have applied for the 820 partner visa, and my partner is submitting his sponsorship form.
He is now an Australian citizen, but when he first arrived in Aus in 2012, he came on a 457 (skilled sponsorship visa) with his now ex wife. They divorced in 2015, but she was listed as a secondary applicant on his visa, and was sponsored by the same company sponsoring him.

Under the question "have you ever sponsored someone on a visa" should he answer yes or no? Technically I don't think he did, but I want to make sure we don't make a mistake, and I can't find any help / info online!

This question is asking if he has sponsored someone on a partner visa previously and it sounds like he has not. Including a dependent partner on another visa does not impact the sponsorship limitation for partner visas.
