Only their free hub. Shimano branded free hubs are their own thing (everything is in one splined unit that bolts to the hub) and there are significant variations between other companies (different axle diameter and resulting bearing sizes, different ratchet teeth/pawl configurations, different freehub body lengths, etc)
