My source of old style bolts is dried up since a few years ago.
The bottom point and what Saab states about their own bolt (the bronze tint one) is that they are precoated and no extra lubrication is needed when applying torque.
I have found bolts nowadays that have loose washers and are more black than grey or bronze and that absolutely needs lubrication since if I don't use lube, they come to a screeching halt during the 90Â° turn and the torque wrench is shaking violently when that happens.
So I'm sorry, there are no set rules anymore.
