Titanium Stem Bolts - Good it Bad

I’m sorry if this has been done to death but I’ve just bought a new ste, Fizik R1, with Ti bolts. I remember seeing that Ti bolts aren’t good for stems and other high stress areas despite me thinking they were as strong if not stronger than steel?

So are they ok? I’m asking as I’m a heavy rider at 110kg and want to be safe. I don’t care about any weight savings they give being as big as I am and didn’t buy the stem for the bolts do have no issues with swapping them out for slightly heavier steel.
