Does anyone have the final line regarding mailing of devices with LiOn batteries?

When I asked at the post office, I was told that loose LiOn batteries can no longer be mailed in any mail that will go on a plane. They must be installed in the device. Apparently, extra batteries would have to go in a separate shipment that is transported by truck.

Apparently this affects all mail that goes by plane, even within the US. But that's the part where I'm getting conflicting info when looking it up online.

If so, there are implications for camera equipment mailed within the US. Has anyone been asked if your shipment contains LiOn batteries? Anyone work for USPS and/or somehow know what the real deal is? I can't see having to split up shipments.
