Do DoTs tick after the "vulnerable" phase is over?

During fights where the boss has certain vulnerable phases such as EC Kephess or EV Soa, do DoTs continue to do damage after that vulnerable phase ends? For example, if I have 5 ticks left of a DoT when the Warstrider stands back up, are those still going to tick and do damage?

The bosses (warstrider, soa) are immune to all.

pro-tip: If you do have a DOT build, it is handy to pre-DOT the boss so they are already there when the boss becomes vulnerable. This way you can immediately chain into your bigger hitters. Lethality snipers are a prime example of this where you can apply corrosive dart and corrosive grenade while the boss is invulnerable. As soon as the boss looses immunity, you can unleash weakening blast and Cull. It gives you 2 free GCDs to up your damage with high burst skills.

As the above poster said, but in phases where they activate a reflect damage sheild. The DoT that was already applied does infact still work and doesn't reflect the damage back.

The one that comes to mind is nightmare pilgrim and creature from the stars.
