No tablet use in exit row during taxi/takeoff/landing?

Was flying Level yesterday ORY-EWR in the exit row (Exit door on an A332). On descent, the FA instructed I needed to put my tablet (LG tablet about the size of an iPad mini) and Bose headphones that I was wearing away in the overhead, saying that we are not allowed to use them during taxi/takeoff/landing in the exit row.

I've never heard that and have sat in the exit row with that exact same tablet/headphones on many flights on various airlines, including during takeoff on this flight when another flight attendant was sitting directly across from me in her jumpseat and didn't say a peep.

Was the F/A on landing wrong there or is it just a loosely enforced rule?
