As long as plate is illuminated with white light there is no stipulation on all bulbs be working.
The relevant paragraph may be in a separate location. Generally, all exterior lights on a vehicle must be functional. Whether there is on license plate bulb or two, if you have multiple brake lights, all must be operative.
