Manifold bolts

Hi,
I just noticed something on the m130 head,
I have four manifold studs (one not shown on this picture) and the last two were bolts

And if you look at this picture which is from another m130 engine you can see 6

What is the correct setup?
Thank you

Originally all studs but replacement by bolts is pretty common. Nothing wrong with good quality bolts properly installed. They usually get replaced when in the process of changing a gasket the old studs unscrew.

Thank you
That and the newer style gasket confirms something had been fine to this engine in the past
