Can contact sets be used for a drop test?

I have a simple assembly of 2 overlapping blocks, attached image. I am dropping them onto the edge of on of the blocks, bottom-most edge in image.

 

If I use Global Contact the drop test will run. If I use Component Contact the drop test will run.

 

If I use Contact Set the drop test will not run.  I get an error "Incompatible bonding is not supported by Drop Test. Please define compatible bonding."

 

There is not an option to make a contact set have a compatible mesh, does this mean that Contact Sets cannot be used for a drop test?
