Yes, New Rear Specific ones are also directionally drilled .. so spoke line is in the rim. stronger that way..
Note to Belc 349 ETRO, is a larger rim smaller high pressure tire, 16" rim. smaller than 406 20" rims..
just replaced the spoke or 2, on my old Mk2
then recently swapped out single wall front wheels , 2nd one with a shimano dynohub..
the single wall rim same front and back ..
New spec. the rim is different rear & front.
As you are changing from 1 rim to another, without , likely, not needing different spokes
tape the new rim to the old one and move the spokes over 1 by 1... still attached to the hub..
