COM Extract at Build

I am new to Basic MSI projects and have a question about COM extraction. If I have extracted the COM information into a project and then decide to extract the COM info at build time, should I remove the COM info from the project.

Will InstallShield delete the existing COM data before extracting it at build time?

I believe InstallShield does not remove static COM information if you switch to extract-at-build; in a quick test going from one-time COM extraction to dynamic COM extraction, the build process displays warning:
warning -4350: Dynamically acquired ProgId Zzzz.Zzzz.1 conflicts with static data associated with component ZzzzzzZzz. Overwriting with dynamic data.
Some static data I modified from the original still seems to be in the completed database, too.
