Dyls is on a distinguished road

It seems that there are 3 different convection coefficients that one could look at when estimating heat transfer by convection: heat transfer coefficient (y+ specified), local heat transfer coefficient, and heat transfer coefficient.

Where can I find the reference temperature for the last one, the heat transfer coefficient? I thought it would be in Continua->Physics->Reference Values->Reference Temperature but my boundary heat flux does not seem to be affected when I change this value.
