Notes in an A13 chord?

Does an A13 chord include the 11th? Here's why I'm asking... If you google this chord for piano, sometimes the third (C#) is omitted and sometimes the 11th (D) is omitted -- but sometimes they are both included. In a theory video I watched a chord played as A - G - B - D - F# (Gmaj7/A) was referred to as an A13sus. This makes sense if the D (the 11th) is not included in a "standard" A13. But if it is, I'm confused as to why it is referenced this way.
