It depends case by case. But generally speaking, the treatment of IC electrons in ENDF is simple. So I cannot believe we get much improved result with such data. Sorry I cannot say anything above this.

This is really strange, and I wanted to check by myself. Could you give me the neutron energy?

Yes, it is. Gd data of ENDF VII has the data MF6MT102. But I believe there is no IC electrons. And we do not produce G4NDL from the files.
