[Koha] Koha Item Type 942$c, 952$y

My understanding is that the 942$c is the default item type for that bib record. When you set up item types from the administration screen (under Basic Parameters) you can then set up circulation rules, fines, etc. under circulation and fines rules. Some libraries use item types for Book, Magazine, DVD--fairly generic terms. In my library I got a little more specific: I set up reference, reserve, popular health reading, circulating, and a few others. When I set up loan periods, they were based on item types.
When I add a book to our collection, the default item type (942$c) comes up automatically in the 952$y. I can change the item type for that particular book--if we have one copy on reserve and one in general circulation, for example--but unless I change the item type it stays as the default.
As usual, corrections welcome if I'm wrong.

Incredible coincidence as just last week I was asked to explain why the 'Record-level item type' column was suddenly (and very occasionally) appearing in the Koha intranet when an item was returned. I had no idea, but I have found 3,000 items (out of half a million) that had data (pulled from the 942$c) in the biblioitems table, and once I deleted the data in the 942$c the biblioitems.itemtype vanished and the 'Record-level item type' column in the returns screen vanished.
I still have no idea what the 'Record-level item type' actually is, and it was on my list of things to ask our support company. I'm looking forward to finding out...

I am migrating my data from oracle database to KOHA.
I would like to use
the 942$c to store document types such as handbooks, dictionary etc (I will not create any circulation rules for these values) and 952$y for koha item type used for circulation rules.
I intend to edit the MARC framework and update the authorized value of 942$c to a new created authorized value such as DTYPE.
However KOHA links this field to biblioitems.itemtype.
I wanted to understand how and where is this field used in KOHA functions.
Will this cause any malfunctioning with respect to lending or any other functions.
With best regards,
