Thanks for the responses, and I hope this helps someone else in the future.
That is correct. As long as the engine is freshwater cooled, either heat exchanger or keel cooler, there is no reason to have an anode in the Antifreeze/freshwater cooled block.
There should be one pencil zinc in saltwater side of the heat exchanger and if equipped with a turbo cooler a pencil zinc as well. If you have an aftermarket combo oil cooler there will most likely be a pencil zinc there as well. My factory oil coolers did not have zinc's, but replacements do.
