Are Sage Seeds Edible?

Both of my sage plants bloomed. What's now left projecting from the plant are dried up stalks with little black seeds in brown seed heads/capsules. I am familiar with using dried sage leaves from the grocery store, but not the seeds. Are they edible? How to prepare for cooking?

I've never heard of eating the seeds but check out this site http://www.smal  rm.com/herbs.htm

Most of the time when looking up an herb it would tell you if the seeds are used, if you don't see it, then its not.

They are edible and looks like they are similar to chia seeds. https://plants.  pdf/cs_saap2.pdf
