It can, but see that hex head built into the top of the bolt? You use that to hold it still.

Ok but if I'm using a torque to apply the specific torque from the Bentley manual.
The torque will be on top of the knuckle so how can I hold it to prevent to spins

use impact then torque...it will not move. I have done 15 sets this way. If no impact, tighten nut with box end wrench and hold with torx bit until tight then torque to spec.
