LMX2594EVM: About phase shifting

Part Number: LMX2594EVM

Hello Support team,

I read the datasheet, and I found in 7.3.11 Phase Adjust.

It says When MASH_SEED and Phase SYNC are used together with IncludedDivide > 1, additional constraints may be necessary to produce a monotonic relationship between MASH_SEED and the phase shift, especially when the VCO frequency is below 10 GHz.These constraints are application specific, but some general guidelines are to reduce modulator order and increase the N divider.

Do I need to meet the guidelines, when it is in category 1?
