As we learnt in 

Rules for significant figures -

Zeros preceding to first non-zero digit are not significant. Such zero indicates the position of decimal point.

- wherein

0.06 has one significant figure and 0.0085 has two significant figures.

 

Since the zeros preceding the first non-zero digit are insignificant. So, 0563 has 3 significant digits.
