Question Does the copy number of a parent volume propagate down to the daughter volumes?

Hi Everybody,
I was just wondering if the copy number of the parent volume propagates 
to the daughter volumes? I have a detector I have constructed using 
multiple volumes of which I only an interested in the energy deposition 
in one small volume (this is a granddaughter volume of the main volume).
I would like to copy these detectors whole and be able to reference the 
volume of interest (the granddaughter volume) by copy number.

A Replication would appear suit my purposes perfectly, unfortunately 
once I have replicated the detector within the world volume I cannot 
place any other volumes within the world volume. I have overcome this 
by just using G4PVPlacement and incrementing the copy number when I 
place the main volumes, which automatically places the daughter volumes 
contained within this copied volume. What I would like to know is if 
the daughter volumes automatically placed by Geant within the copied 
parent volume take their copy number from tha parent volume?

If this is the case it would make my simulation very simple, i have 
considered using a Parameterisation to create these copies but I think 
it may be overkill for what I am attempting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Dale.
