Default wedge BC in OpenFOAM

Hi foamers

I have a doubt about the BC "wedge". I have axi-symmetric geometry (cylindrical plate) but fluid (drop of oil) is NOT at the centre (0,0,0). Can I apply wedge BC to the geometry? Like, I have meshed 60 degree secor of plate and defined 2 side faces as wedge. Will that be OK or do I need to mesh complete cylindrical plate (or half plate with symmetryPlane, running thru the center of drop, condition) for analysis to be correct?

Thanks in advance for help.
