Default Dry enzyme and priming

Do you need to use less sugar when priming if you used a dry enzyme?

I'm unfamiliar with dry enzymes - what are they?

3g sachet to add with yeast. This enzyme helps yeast to break down and consume more of the remaining sugars in your brew, creating a lower final S.G. Because it assists the conversion to alcohol, it can contribute to a beer with a drier finish and lighter body.

No use the normal amount of priming sugar. The priming sugar is already fermentable. The enzyme breaks down unfermentables so the yeast can eat them.
