Vertically installed shiplap vinyl siding

Hi All, looking to install fixture boxes as well as receptacle boxes on vertical vinyl siding do you use the same boxes as for regular vinyl siding?
Maybe I am making to much about this but I have never worked with vertical siding.

Yes, you use the same type of mount. While you have it apart, make sure there is housewrap on the wall and if there isn't, at least install a vertical piece of WRB behind your new fixture mount so that when it rains, the water that leaks in will be on top of the WRB until it reaches the bottom of the wall.
