Stupid question...

Not where I thought I'd end up
I feel like I should know this but - I don't...
I posted the other day about an old Agfa folder I've got and wanted to CLA the thing and try it out. I've got it all cleaned and apparently working well. The rangefinder is clear, the focus ring turns nicely, shutter cocks and fires every time and the speeds seem to be right. I'm ready to try this thing out and I've got a roll of 120 to load.
Question is: Do I have to load the film in the dark or a changing bag? Or is 120 film the one with a paper backing so I can load it in the light?

The 120 can be loaded in daylight, but is advised to do it in shadow.
220 see above also, but you need to watch the arrows on the back of the paper to watch for where the flim will begin.
