no in the CIB.
it goes in the RA metadata.  eg.
<parameter name="dampen" unique="0">
<longdesc lang="en">
The time to wait (dampening) further changes occur
<shortdesc lang="en">Dampening interval</shortdesc>
<content type="integer" default="1s"/>

the metadata is cached, not the value.  the metadata should only
rarely need to change
