I have a friend from Iran here in Tbilisi wondering how long he can stay in the country.

I know from another question here that as an Australian I can stay for 360 days, but that answer contains a list of which countries get that deal, and it does not include Iran.

This implies from my reading of the rest of the linked page on the Georgian government's site that he needs a visa to enter. Yet he assures me he got only a passport stamp at the border when he crossed from Armenia with his Iranian passport.

He even asked at the border how long he could stay and says he was told "as long as you like"!

So are there some different rules for Iranians in Georgia listed somewhere other than on that page? How long can he stay?
