Do the Alpines with hydraulic brakes have the Bosch system to monitor the electrical integrity of the backup breaking system?

I was reading through the Bosch manual for the hydraulic breaking system and ran across the following:

"Bosch recommends that a monitor module be included to monitor the electrical integrity of
the backup system. Bosch offers two types with the following features and functions:
Monitor Module Type I
Features
1. Performs start-up self test for proper electrical signal to reserve backup pump.
2. Continuously test for an open circuit in backup pump.
3. Turns on vehicle warning light and buzzer if any of the above tests indicate a backup system electrical malfunction. The warnings are continuous until the malfunction is corrected or the power is shut off.
4. Conveys signal to provide electrical power to the backup pump via the relay.
5. Provides a centralized housing for diodes.
6. Includes an integral differential pressure switch light check at start up.

Monitor Module Type II (12 volt only)
Features
1. Performs start-up self test for proper electrical signal to backup pump.
2. Continuously tests for an open circuit in backup pump.
3. Tests for voltage during brake application in brake light circuit and backup pump relay coil circuit on vehicles equipped with dual brake switches.
4. Turns on warning light(s) and buzzer if any of the above tests indicate a backup pump system electrical malfunction. The warnings are continuous until the malfunction is corrected or the power is shut off.
5. Absence or malfunction of the module will not affect backup system operation.
6. Turns on light(s) and buzzer when integral differential pressure switch is activated."
