6000 GDI Winterization Question

I followed the procedure in the manual for draining the water from the hose attached to the sea pump. The bolt was marked in yellow but there are other bolts on both sides of engine and one on heat exchanger marked yellow also. Can someone confirm that the other bolts would drain antifreeze from the engine if removed? Thanks

For the closed cooling engines, there are is a brass Zinc fitting on both the engine heat exchanger and oil/transmission heat exchanger that needs to be removed so they can drain.

Any insight into why the manual doesn’t cover this for GDI engines? I used the flush valve to pump glycol into the engine that’s supposed to fill all raw water volumes.
