 I am not sure to understand your question (if any).

 Do you suggest that the tracking of particles has not changed with/without
 blocks inside thw world ? Yes, this is strange. 

 Or do you ask how much the tracks must change with/without blocks ?
  - photon tracks must be unchanged (except number of steps)
  - charged particles : the multiple scattering by itself limits the step,
    therefore the whole patern must be rather insensitive to dummy volumes.

 Anyway, limiting the step by geometry only to record doses can be done,
 but it is the less efficient way to proceed : one force photons to stop
 for nothing, and one trigger the whole geometry computation.

 You may be interested to look at 
 examples/extended/electromagnetic/TestEm11 or 12 or 7

 Defining a dummy grid in parallele to a single cylinder is done in TestEm2
