Both sram and shimano use a small screw at the same position for the normal mount brake, but the front DM of shimano has a screw at another side, that's why shimano's pad has two grooves.

Just do it.

Ee brakes use no screw. But they have a raised region on the inside the slots into the horizontal groves. So the pads need modification.

I know that structure because I'm using G3 DM EE. It's easy to modify the pads.
