Manifest network_not_required vs portal "conn. required"?

Here is conundrum - (A) the dev.portal has a setting:
"Properties screen" wrote:
*Internet Connection Required
Is an Internet connection required to use the channel? (Yes/No)

(B) The Manifest file on the other hand has this:
network_not_required - Integer - Set to 1 to specify the application does not require the network (such as the USB Media Player). This lets the user launch an application even if there is no network connection.

How do these 2 work together? Which takes precedence if they contradict each other?
(i assume there are cases when (A) is required and cases when (B) is required - or only one would have been implemented)
