Would human-bane weapons do extra damage against the Kalashtar?

Kalashtar look similar to humans (to the point they get a disguise bonus), originated as humans, and the main differences are mental/psionic, so it makes sense that they would, but are there rules to back that up?

Kalashtar are humanoids of the human subtype. As a result, human-bane weapons are effective on them.

Kalashtar have human bodies, but they have two spirits inside it: one Human-spirit and one Quori-spirit. I think that a Bane (humans) magic weapon "recognizes" the body which it hits and not the spirit insideit because if we were talking about enthralled or psionically manipulated humans there wouldn't be no problem, would it?
