There´s this model that states a binary companion has to be 3.5 times as far from the primary star as the planet - or vice versa - for the planet´s orbit to be stable, isn´t there?
So given the range of distances for Near Binaries (3-25 AU), it should be possible for planets to exist on orbits of less than about 7.15 AU or more than 10.5 AU from the primary, depending on the exact orbital radius of the primary. Even at the closest distance, and orbit of about 0.85 AU or less should be stable. Working within the framework of the Worldgen rules, I´d say we one could just as well replace "Near Binaries never have planets" with "Near Binaries only have planets in the Inner and Habitable zones".
