No, you can certainly use fudge factors with Gromacs.


1. If you do not generate 1,4 ("pair") interactions they will be zero  
unless you specify them explicitly.
2. If you do generate them, standard combination rules of the force  
field will be applied, combined with the fudge factor.
3. If you generate pairs and still specify some interactions, those  
will override the generated values.
