In Heresy-Engine based games (Airship Pirates, Victoriana 2E), do monsters have gray dice?

For example, if the Bestiary lists dogs as 4HD, do they get 4 ordinary health dice plus the 4 gray ones, resulting in (4+4)*2=16 pips, or do do they drop dead as soon as the original 4*2=8 pips are depleted?

I finally found an example in the first official Airship Pirates module "Ruined Empires". The monster stats on pages 21 and 22 have gray dice for the GM to tick.
