Is RAM soldered to main board or in SODIMM slots?

I am considering buying a used iMac A2116 (EMC 3195), specifically an MRT32LL/A. As most available units have 8GB RAM, and I really want to have 16GB or 32GB of RAM. However, some iMacs have RAM that is soldered to the main board.

I would really like a reliable clarification as to whether the RAM in an MRT32LL/A is soldered to the main board, or, if it’s in SODIMM slots (indicating that they are replaceable).

Thanks to all for your replies!

Hello. I realize that this is an old question, and I’m surprised that it hasn’t been answered already. Certainly by now, you’ve already gotten an answer to your question or have given up. I hope not. Either way, RAM in the 19,2 iMac from 2019 is not soldered on the board. It is upgradable.
