How are Cost Groups referenced during inventory transactions? 

When the GL accounts setup on a Cost Group are referenced for an inventory transaction versus when the GL accounts setup for the inventory organization are referenced for an inventory transaction.

For example, in the Cost Management Users Guide (Average Costing, page 5-44), the document indicates that for a 'Purchase Order Receipt to Inventory"...
"The accounting entries for the delivery portion of the transaction are as follows:

DEBIT - Organization Material account @ PO cost
CREDIT - Receiving Inspection account @ PO cost"

This implies that the Material Account setup at the inventory organization (Organization Material account) is what is referenced for the PO receipt, however there are notes (example:
<Note 436698.1> that indicate that the GL account referenced on the Cost Group of the product is what would be used for an inventory transaction.

What inventory transactions reference the GL accounts (specifically - Material) at the Inventory Organization level versus the Cost Group level.
