Light Designer 2.11. Does a channel MAX level effect incoming sACN control?

(ETC isn't open yet today so I'll ask here)

Lightdesigner 2.1.1

If I set a channels MAX level below 255, does it effect control from sACN?  If the MAX is set to 200 will external sACN be able to bring the channel above 200...or does the MAX only effect internal control?
