Selective Service, entry at 25 visa CR-1

I'll be entering the US after I turn 25 on a CR-1. My understanding is that I need to register for the Selective Service System, but my question is, have I somehow automatically enrolled through this visa process I've undertaken? I feel like there was a section on the DS260 that asked me if I would like to register but I can't seem to find it, but maybe it was just a warning. It also says you must register within 30 days of your 18th birthday, but I'm assuming it wouldn't be an issue for me if I register before I turn 26?

You can do it online once you come to the USA and get a SSN. The link is below:

If you are male then register after you get your SSN: https://www.sss.gov/Home/Registration

If you are female then its not required and the form will not accept your registration: https://www.sss.gov/Registration/Women-And-Draft
