Dear Geant4 Users and experts

I would like to understand about the behavior of G4LogicalBorderSurface toward the incoming photon. Suppose I have two physical volumes vol1 and vol2 and they are touching together at a particular interface with reflection coefficient let's say 98% so we have

     |
vol1 |  vol2
     |

let the photon comes from vol1 to vol2 ie vol1--> Interface--->vol2

So now the are two possibilities of defining the boundary surface as

new G4LogicalBorderSurface("name",vol1_phys,vol2_phys,OpSurf) and new G4LogicalBorderSurface("name",vol2_phys,vol1_phys,OpSurf)

my question is in which of the two cases the photon sees 98% of reflection coefficient. Because I am observing in the simulation that it does matters for photon's reflection. Is it so ???
