French Penal Regiment Organization

Here's an odd one. For the French regiments of refractaires that marched with the XI Corps in 1812: Walcheren, Belle Isle, et al. . . .
Were the battalions organized as for standard line battalions, i.e. with four fusilier companies and the two elite companies, or where they four or six fusilier companies?
