Default Dithering away

Hi,

Could someone please tell me what the "Processing" preference panel does? My specific question is, if I have a "Default Dither" selected, will I still need the Dither plugin on the Master Fader to dither my final mixes down to 16 bits? What does "Default Dither" do and when is it applied? (I know the basic concepts behind dithering)

And should I use Dither on a 16 bit session? I.e. is the internal bit rate, on an LE mix of a 16 bit session, more than 16 bits and therefore dithering will help? Will dithering help anyway?

I can report a documentation bug in that this Processing Preference Panel is either completely absent from the manual or else very difficult to find...there is nothing in the index about it that I could see.
