Geant4 knows NOTHING about solid state physics and conduction bands in metals etc. It treats your metal as a homogeneous material with which the electrons interact (conductor or insulator - they are the same for G4). The electrons sense the electric field but their material interaction dominates; e.g. G4 is not suitable for your purposes.
