Bilstein Part #s and Bump Stops

I have the following Bilsteins on the rear - F4 B46-0975-HO.
PP lists "Sport" shocks as part # F4 B46-0975-M12.

Can anyone confirm whether the "-HO" shocks are standard or sport?

I'm looking at upgrading shocks all round, but want to be sure of what I have to start with. No point changing them if PO already did it.

My Bilstein front struts don't have any bump stop rubbers under the top cover.
I know the rear shocks have them, so why not the front? Boge struts have them.
Surely there should be something for the suspension to hit at full travel!

Day job ...
