Meaning of 1M (2m) 2NT?

Many people nowadays play that a 2NT response to a 1 or 1 opening is Jacoby, showing 4 card support and a game-going hand.  Some relax the requirements to allow hands with invitational values or 3 card support.

My question is:   do you play any form of Jacoby 2NT after intervention?  Here I'm focusing on a 2 or 2 overcall, although the question is also relevant after an overcall in the other major.    Please provide a comment if your answer would be different for the sequences   1 (1) 2NT or 1 (2) 2NT.

Please also comment if you play 2NT to show support for opener's major, but there are constraints on the nature of the hand (e.g. balanced) or the length in opener's suit (e.g. exactly 3 cards).

2NT is game-forcing with support for opener's major.
2NT shows an invitational hand with support for opener's major.
2NT shows an invitational plus hand with support for opener's major.
2NT is natural, i.e. non-forcing, stopper in the opponent's suit, about 11 points.
