Default Head Bolt Question

Do any of the bolts in a 2005 3.0 need thread sealant? Are any of the bolt holes open to the water jacket? I tried searching for it but haven't seen any reference to using any so I'm guessing not, just wanted to be sure.

Thanks!

No, no sealant on heads bolts, engines that do make a point of mentioning it, so wouldn't be hard to find out
