I don't know, but I have found this solution present in a lot of cars.  In
re-assembling, I've always used studs though.  The bolts will either be too
long to properly torque the manifold down, or they won't thread all the way
in and the torque will be pulling on fewer threads.   I wonder if there are
any heat transfer issues, although that seems a bit far-fetched.
