Indeed the QValue in the G4RadDecay file is only informative for the case of alpha decay and is directly computed in the decay code G4GeneralPhaseSpaceDecay::TwoBodyDecayIt(). There is no way to change that value as it is correctly calculated in the code from the mass of the mother and the two daughters.
