Yes, seems so and don't know.
The K-class have one HSC slot on the Core I/O, and the K4xx and K5xx has 
a HSC Expansion card which adds another four HSC slots.

Some hints maybe found at:

1000Base-SX Gigabit Ethernet)
Especially this document covers a HSC-1000Base-SX interface:

And, while at it, K580 is big bollocks. How's it configured?
