Kernel agents: Should they be running on all nodes

Knowing that Kernel agents are essential for OOTB Pega functioning, is it implied that these agents should be running on all nodes?  And therefore, associated with RunOnAllNodes (instead of BackgroundProcessing node type).

In Pega 8.31, I have observed that nearly all Kernel Agents are associated with node type BackgroundProcessing.  If I have one node in my cluster classified as Custom1, based on the OOTB settings, I could see only 2 agents running on it.

SystemEventEvaluation | Case management | System-Queue-Events
SystemPulse           | Kernel          | System-Queue-DefaultEntry

Is this an expected configuration for proper system behaviour?
