Ive got a 2 site Exchange 2003 SP2 Exchange organisation set up with routing group connectors and an SMTP connector at the main site - All working

Ive created the entire environment inside Virtual server to do a "Test Transition to Exchange 2007" All is going swimmingly however I have a question

During Setup It pointed out (screen shot attached)
  Warning If OWA is in use.........

Now reading http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Transitioning-Exchange-2000-2003-Exchange-Server-2007-Part2.html

It says

" Even though you still have legacy Outlook clients (Outlook 2003 and earlier) in your organization, you dont need to set up a replica for the SCHEDULE+ FREE BUSY or the OFFLINE ADDRESS BOOK system folder. This will be done automatically when deploying an Exchange 2007 Server in a legacy Exchange organization.  "

So which is it? do I need to do anything - or will it do it for me?

All other "user" public folders have been set up as replicas and are working.
