Flywheel Bolts: Shouldered vs. Non-shouldered??

I'm doing a clutch job on an '85 VW QSW (same
engine/drive train as in the 4KQ).
The Bentley manual gives 2 different torque specs for
the flywheel bolts, base on either: "bolts WITH a
shoulder" vs. "bolts WITHOUT shoulder."
Now, the hex bolts I took off have a washer
incorporated on the head as one solid piece. Bolt
looks like a hexagonal little hat, to visualize.
So, is safe to assume they are bolts with a shoulder,
If so, the torque is 25 NM higher (shouldered) than
the non-shouldered version, if memory serves me well.
Thanks in advance.
