I haven’t seen any planer only 12” wide with an on board grinder, the smallest I’ve seen was an 18” Powermatic 180. Not sure if they were available for the 160 or not, but machines of that heft are the kind most likely to have one. Just because it has one doesn’t mean that they couldn’t be flat ground, it would just be a PITA the first time they needed to be hollow ground sharpened as the profile would have contoured in such a way that would require significant metal removal.
