DIG-S Battery replacment (EFB)

The battery in my 2012 DIG-S Micra is starting to give up. Lasted a while and been showing signs for a while (throwing error codes if the battery is a little low on engine crank).

I have just about got over the cost of the battery, however I am reading that some cars need replacment batteries 'programmed' into the car?

Does anybody know if this is true for the DIG-S?
