French Corp D'observation 1808 - no light infantry

Wondering if there has been a mistake? Nafziger lists at least one regt in the 1st Corp of Observation of the Gironde and also for the Corp of Observation of the Ocean Coast. They are provisional but are listed as light.

Belated reply but as I recall I used Digby Smith's Napoleonic data book for these and he listed none , but I will check back as I may have misremembered so it could be an omission.

But I also have a question in my mind whether provisional light infantry ought to qualify as Light Infantry at all - at least in 1813 I do. I would also need strengths to be sure they are not better treated as attachments.
