Yes, and the acid test is what the examiner (DPE) considers acceptable. So as a CFI, what I do, if there is any doubt, is to create a summary of the requirements, and reference the date&time for the log entry, so that the DPE can establish that the requirements are satisfied.
CFI initial rides tend to get extreme scrutiny, and I use the same approach there, namely a checklist of the essential requirements for the rating, and the references to show where those requirements were satisfied. The FAA inspectors love it. The DPEs love it. It makes everyone's job easier, and saves hassles.
So as a student, instrument or commercial, I would assemble your list of the rating requirements, and reference the log entries supporting those requirements. Then have your CFI signoff on your worksheet after he reviews your data. Present a copy to your DPE (yep, a copy for his records if he wishes). It will help your checkride start on a good note.
After 37 years, I have never had a student sent home because they did not meet the rating experience requirements.
