I would think that they are all practice mutes, I've never seen any parts written for "muted bass".
The idea is to stop vibration from translating from string to instrument so they all work by sitting on the bridge and absorbing the string vibration. They don't really stop the sound dead, so you won't really be able to practice in the middle of the night or anything.
But if the walls of your falt are thick enough and/or you practice while your neighbors are watching TV or doing stuff, they should be OK.
