Phh... this is a good question... I would guess YES, otherwise the
whole source-specific routing would not work.

in olsrd2 (and olsrd) we just set all parameters... but I remember the
original olsrd had trouble when not using a static "routing metric"
for the routing entry. In olsrd2 I always set a constant metric value
for every route, that's why I mentioned the metric.
