U-joints; Twin Shock vs Paralever

I know the twin shock BMWs require a bit of gear oil in the swingarm, but the Paralevers do not. Are their U-joints of a fundamentally different design, such that a Paralever is lubricated for life? Or is the oil there primarily to lubricate the splines where the shaft mates to the rear drive? (done with grease on the Paralever)
