freetype-freeworld 2.7: v40 or v38 engine?

Fedora 26 ships with FreeType 2.7 which I presume has the new v40 engine enabled (I assume that v40 can apply to both grayscale and subpixel rendering). I noticed RPM Fusion still has the freetype-freeworld package available for Fedora 26, which used to enable v38, aka infininality, on Fedora 25 and earlier. My question is: does freetype-freeworld 2.7 use v40 or v38 for subpixel rendering? And am I right that the new engine does indeed apply to both grayscale and subpixel rendering?
