Roll Formed vs Tapped Hole in SW2015

I've been asked to change some tapped M6 holes (cosmetic threads only) on a model to rolled formed M6 holes.  I'm using SW2015 and I don't see rolled formed as a type of tapped hole.  Am I missing something (maybe because I'm using an older version of SW)?

 

Also, we have a 5.5mm cast hole (per standards) and when I go to add the M6 threaded hole, I get a rebuild error (The intended hole does not intersect the model).  Is this because the hole wizard uses the minor diameter of the thread?  I see that I can change the default dia in the hole wizard to something larger that 5.5mm and it works but is this correct?
