new 5i25, ordered without daughterboards: does it already have firmware loaded?

My impression from reading about other Mesa board combos is that they load firmware that matches the expected use based on the daughtercard(s) you order, and if you order a 5i25 by itself they ship it with the firmware that generally matches the stock parallel port. Is this true? I've done a fair bit of searching on it and have seen other people indicate that they had the right firmware already loaded.
I'm a bit nervous about using mesaflash and am hoping what I have is already set up more or less like I need. (Which is I believe PROB_RFX2)

Thanks for any advice

John

In a terminal:
Mesaflash --device 5i25 --readhmid
Do not fear the mesaflsh, just a bit o care when writing new firmware to make sure it is for 5i25.
Must have flashed a 6i25 over 100 times by now! And all of the other 6i25, 5i25 and 7i92. :)
