ADU in the CA Coastal Zone

I'm curious if anyone out there has experience building a new ADU in the Coastal Zone in California. I was under the impression that the state law of 4' maximum setback superseded any other jurisdiction, but I recently heard that in the Coastal Zone, this is not the case, and local coastal program (LCP) guidelines actually trump the state law when it comes to setbacks. Is this accurate?
