Including.  It relates to a bartype anyway, not a note or rest. It 
could even be text following the music on the same line.

blah blah || D.S.

but it's almost always underneath a single stave or between
staves just before the next bartype.

if a D.S. did not coincide with a bartype near it, it would have
to refer to another double bar near it.  I have seen
that only once, and it's not pretty.
