Elliptic PDEs

When looking at Elliptic PDEs that describe a physical system, do these typically not involve a time term?
I have yet to see an elliptic PDE involving a time term, which seem to be associated with parabolic/hyperbolic PDEs rather than elliptic.

Can anyone confirm?

Typically elliptic PDE's are static equations that do not involve a time term. Examples are Laplace's equation or Poisson's equation.
