However, the smaller Intel NAS were pure 32-bit units, while the ones with five* and more bays have 64-Bit Kernels - what is required to handle storage volumes > 16 TB. So this should fit up to 8 TB drives, beyond the two bay units will need 64-bit Kernels, too.
*TS-509 does remain excluded from support of drives > 2 TB.

I expect the 4-drive nas you have will be fully compatable with 4tb drives, and maybe even bigger in the future. Who cares how many bits the underlying OS uses?
