None Geometry hierarchy - how it affects the results

I have the following question - does putting my sensitive detectors in an additional logical volume affect the final results? In other words - the detectors are organized in the way that they create vertical structures and each of these strucutures contains the same number of detectors. I can put my detectors directly in the world volume or create an aritificial container (a volume) for each line of detectors and put these into the world volume. The containers in this case are made of the same material as the world volume. I tried both approaches and I found out that the results for the same primary beam and with the same random seed are different for the above approaches.
