SMS/Tuflow Losses

I am wondering if anyone can explain (or point me in the direction of an explanation) the difference in loss calculation in Tuflow, between using the IL/CL hydrologic losses in an SMS materials file and using the unsupported (unsupported in SMS) soils file feature of Tuflow?

I've read that the IL/CL hydrologic losses that are input into the SMS materials file are extracted from rainfall to simulate canopy interception, and that these losses are generally used for rainfall. However they still occur when I put in a hydrograph instead of rainfall.

I have also read that the losses in the Tuflow soils files are taken from ponded water in the cell.
