Layout consideration for PH pin, AGND, PGND

PH pins (10,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,42) – according to the datasheet shouldn't be connected to anything and stay floating. When I look at the EVB it seems you connected it to AGND through a resistor. The EVB indicate do not assemble the resistor

AGND pins (2,23) – according to the datasheet shouldn't be connected to anything and stay floating. When I look at the EVB it seems you connected it to PGND through a resistor. The EVB indicate do not assemble the resistor

So, do I really need these resistors in my layout? Can I remove them?

The layout consideration doesn't show how to connect between the copper plane of PH and AGND through resistor, and also doesn't show how to connect the PGND and AGND through a resistor (page 26 in datasheet). Can you provide the layout of the EVB board?
