License 8G for DCX-4S

Hello.
In our environment we have 2 directors DCX-4S with blades FC8-48. It so happened that for this equipment, we have only 4G SFP's.
Now we want to empower our backbone and buy 8G SFP's.

I am interested in the question - do we need to buy a license "8G" for our directors or support for 8G built into them by default?
Thank you in advance for your answers.

It is built in.  The 8G license is only applicable to 300, 5100 and 5300 model switches.

Not required for directors using FC8-xx blades.
