Many parents feedback that "Block at Downtime" was turned off automatically by iPhone after Screen Time shows "Ignore Limit" on Child's iPhone. And the child can use some apps with no restrictions.
About "Ignore Limit" feature: When an app reached the time limit on your iPhone, it will show a message that "You're reached your limit on [some app]". And there is a "Ignore Limit" button at the bottom of the screen, if you tap it to ignore the limit, you can get the next 15 minutes or the entire day without any restrictions.
So if the child choose the entire day to ignore limit to "Ask For More Time", and the parent approve on the iPhone. The child can use that app in the entire day.
