Does the Ford Kuga diesel have an Eolys-treated DPF system?

I am interested in a Ford Kuga Diesel, but have read that it may have an Eolys additive system on it. Going on various friends' bad experiences with this sort of set-up, I absolutely will not buy a diesel so equipped. Can you tell me for definite if the DPF is a coated type, or is it Eolys treated?

Yes, it's a PSA FAP system.
