Type 3 Phrasal Verb - Knock out

Is knock out a type 3 phrasal verb in this context?

Do you know anyone who's been knocked out?

If so, is anyone the object, and does that mean a type 3 phrasal verb can have the object before the verb?

I thought type 3 phrasal verbs had the form

  verb + particle + object or

  verb + object + particle,

but I've never seen the form stated such that it can be object + verb + particle.
