multibody parts and center of gravity

We are a distubutor and model most of the components we sell as multibody parts. Those multibody part files we create get assigned a mass property weight.  We offer a design service to our customers where we create an assembly from our catalog and maybe some custom part.  The custom parts would have the correct materials but the stock shelf components would be a multibody part file with an assigned mass prop. weight.

 

Now to my question.  Does giving the multibody part file affect the center of gravity in an assembly?

 

Using SW09 SP1

 

I heard SW10 can assign different materials in a mulitbody part.  Hopefully we can upgrade soon.
