[ESPResSo] Temperature in reduced unit

Dear all,
Since ESPResSo user guide told that the user can apply the unit they want, I would like to as about the Temperature in reduced unit if being applied in ESPResSo. 
Any general literature mention that T*= kT/epsilon. It means that in any calculation, k wouldn't be used since it will go into T*.
i.e. <E_k> = 3/2 NkT    in reduced unit only become
             E*= 3/2 NT*
What I want to ask is, does ESPResSo do i.e. above calculation in E*= 3/2 NkT* or E*= 3/2 NT* ?
Since if the first applied, I should use T*=T/epsilon.
If the latter used, I should use T*= kT/epsilon and it means ESPResSo dip the k into T* inherently.
Sorry if the question looks trivial, I need to ensure it.
Many Thanks,
