Yes, it does:

The IB_Connection does provide all the settings as the individual
In addition, you can even define ColumnAttributes based on domain-names,
so you can define e.g. properties for all fields basing on your Boolean
domain and other things. (see FieldEntryTypes)
All FieldsXXX properties are duplicated in the Connection, and entries
in your query are overriding them. Also, the GeneratorLinks are
duplicated here.
