[b-hebrew] Final caphs in lexical entries for verbs -- with or without sheva

In working with HALOT and BDB, I've noticed that verb lemmas that end in
final caph sometimes are listed with a sheva in the caph (e.g., )RK, HLK )
and sometimes not (BRK, DWK).


Clines _Dictionary of Classical Hebrew_, however, appears to consistently
omit the sheva as I would have expected; Holladay on the other hand
consistently includes it. 


Does anyone know why the discrepancy? Is there a "rule" that governs this?
