FAA land...

Interesting. In our company we must go around at 100 above minimum if not visual so I assumed it was always a MDA while doing a NPA regardless of doing a CFDA or 'Dive and Drive' technique.
That is because the criteria uses a 50 foot momentary descent on a DA...for most ac, that is not adequate if GA at the DA.

Use of Decision Altitude (Height) in Continuous Descent Final Approaches

Reader beware. That Skybrary link points to a re-hash of Jeppesen's own explanatory leaflet, which was put together at very early stages of their understanding. And it is quoted out of context.

With all due respect to Skybrary's mission, dedication and results (3x thumbs up) they are still de facto a blog, no relevant authority.
