Default DEM solid phase - Boundary Conditions

I'm working with Lagrangian Multiphase and I use solid spherical phases.

When I choose the material properties (Density, Poisson Coef and Young's Modulus), I use the node from the models (Solid). But the Boundary conditions node allow to change the same properties, also.

My question is: What are the properties that the Star use for calulate the colisions? Do I need to change in the two nodes?

I would say that you have to change both, as the material properties of the pebbles and of the walls (boundaries) can be different. At least that is what I have done in the past with my DEM simulations.
