Michel is the greater expert,

but what happens if the multiple scattering step limitation in water is larger than the sub-block size. In this case, the 'trajectories' - straight lines connecting step-points - would be more zig-zag than in the homogeneous case because the multiple scattering angles and lateral displacements are now calculated based on the geometrical step length.

In any event, the simulation result; i.e. where particles/tracks statistically end up relative to where they started (transverse spread), and their angular deviation from their starting direction, should be independent of whether or not the volume is subdivided into cells. The way these tracks look like in visualization, step points connected by straight lines, might well be very different.
