Do google employees and bots share the same ip ranges?

Example:
There is a google bot with an ip 192.168.8.1

I block all the ips with 192.168.8.....
could i be blocking a google employee with an ip 192.168.1.9

thank you

Most SE crawlers these days clearly identify themselves using reverse DNS such as "crawl-*.googlebot.com." for Google, and I've not seen anything resembling an employee on the same IPs.
