Here is my understanding;

Type 11 — Time Exceeded

Codes     Description

  0           Time to Live exceeded in Transit

  1           Fragment Reassembly Time Exceeded

If you permit "time-exceeded", it would permit both codes 0 and 1

If you permit "ttl-exceeded", it would permint code 0.

Also check below link
