I assume so, yes.
That said, LL01 would work fine with European gas. LL04 should work as well, if not better. LL04's only an issue in the US and other areas with high sulfur gas. Given that your engine is new, I would not expect you to have to add any oil before the first change. Depends if you are going to wait until 18K miles or do it early...
