With respect, I think this is at best misleading. An L1 2nd stage planet gear is smaller than an H225 one (L1 has 9 planets; H225 has 8) so they cannot be interchangeable in the same epi module. The L1 epi would not have the torque capacity for an H225.
It might be there will be some shared characteristic (e.g. bearing vendor or material) between L1 and Type B H225 planet gears but they are not the same item.
