Thank you all very much for your help

The impact will be on solar gains through windows but the specific amount depends a great deal on the specifics of the building and the U/SHGC values.  The only way to answer your question is to run the same building with both window models and compare the results.  That statement is basically a caveat for the situation where a user does such a comparison and finds the two window models are not identical.

Later on it is being noted that "...,however there will be important differences in the modeled window performance because the simple glazing system model includes its own special model for angular dependence when incident beam solar is not normal to the plane of the window. When this object is referenced in a Construction".
