DL380 Gen 10 NVMe Backplane Connector Spec

DL380 Gen 10 NVMe Backplane Connector Spec

I can see that a DL380 Gen 10 configured with the NVMe drive cage has SlimLine 8X (aka SlimLine 8i) SFF-8654 connectors/cables to go between the back plane and the PCIe riser.

Would anyone be able to say if these follow the SFF-9402 specification?  Most other server manufacturers with OcuLink or or SlimLine connectors follow that specification, but I can't seem to find in any online resources whether HPe is using it for the DL380 Gen 10 or if they have modified the pinout in some way.
