Hello,

In G4EmExtraPhysics mu-nuclear if off by default, gamma-nuclear is on by default. You need to activate muon-nuclear interaction if needed, however, it is very high energy process of muon interaction.

At 1 GeV muons may be produced by decay of pions or kaons - there are no other sources. Kaon production cross section is small, so likely you can relay only on pions. To get correct spectra of secondary pions you need at 1 GeV to use Binary or Bertini cascades, so QGSP_BIC or QGSP_BERT Physics Lists may be the best choice for today.
