Using aluminum paste anti-seize on caliper bolts

Replacing the stock rotors with Girodisc floating rotors.

Does Porsche specify use of the special aluminum based anti-seize (Castrol Optimol Paste TA) for the brake caliper bolts?

Never used anti-seize on brake caliper bolts in previous cars but they all had steel uprights instead of aluminum like the Cayman.

Edit: I know that Porsche specifies replacing the OEM bolts - are they coated with something to minimize the chance of galling?  Girodisc bolts are not coated AFAIK.
