Dumb question of the night: measuring head bolt stretch?

I'm checking my OM602 head bolts for stretch to see if I can reuse them. I assume I should be measuring only the shaft itself (MINUS the head), no? Otherwise, mine are all WAY out of spec! I have the specs from the manual, but nothing assuring me that I'm measuring in the right places.

Thanks, all!
