I know nothing about PRODRG. ffgmx.rtp does actually have charges for
some of its CH2 & CH3 groups - I didn't look thoroughly last time.

Obviously, in general it would be reasonable for (united) atoms to have
partial charges where a chemist would expect redistribution of charge in
a molecule caused by the electronegativity of the constituent
atoms/groups. The converse also applies.
