The simple answer is "Yes" they are. This is however knowledge based not on divuldged secret, but only on my observation of NPrinting DB repository. 

At the end repository is just a Postgress DB which you can preview with pgAdmin tool and learn all types and settings of fields/tables used in it.

details about how to are here:

note:

you are doing it on your own risk and accessing DB via PG admin with admin credentials can damage it!

Thank you for your reply.

I've analyzed the DB. The GUIDs (32 hex char) garanted certainly a lot of combination but if the GUIDs isn't univocal in DB there's possibility (rare) that are replicatde in different tables. So probably is better if I load them as different ID.

ohhh. i thought you were talking about GUID being univocal within single table...not withing entire DB.

That i will not be able to answer, but you can always qualify all values with table prefix

Yes, I've qualified the IDs. I was looking for a simple solution.
