Saos 7x Egress Port Scheduler?

I'm a little confused about some of the example configurations in the 5305/5410 software configuration guide saos 7.1.
If an egress-port-scheduler is set for strict scheduling, does the tap point weight have any effect?
From pg 346 -
+------------------------ PORT DEFAULT SCHEDULER DATA -------------------------+

| Name | 3/1-Default |

| Id | 3201 |

| Type | Port Default |

| Tap Point Count | 8 |

| Scheduler Algorithm | strict |

| Tap Point | Weight | Priority |

| 0 | 10 | 0 | 

| 1 | 20 | 1 | 

| 2 | 30 | 2 | 

| 3 | 40 | 3 | 

| 4 | 50 | 4 | 

| 5 | 60 | 5 | 

| 6 | 0  | 6 |     

| 7 | 0  | 7 |     

 

Since the scheduler algorithm above is strict, setting the weight to 0 for tap points 7 & 8 has no impact right?

Thanks for anyone who can clarify.
