EIGRP summary route metric

Hello all
my question is exactly what a guy here asks https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/thread/26749
but i am not quite sure i understand the answer

The two possible routes for WAN1 to reach are through B1 and through B2-WAN2-B1
So the metrics for these two routes are calculated from EIGRP automatically and the lowest is then used from WAN1 to advertise summary back to Core1 and Core2?

    i believe the answer to my question is that router WAN1 has some subnets from which are learned from router B1

    then when WAN1 advertises the summary route to Core1 or Core2 EIGRP checks all metrics for subnets that belong to and uses the smallest one to advertise the summary route to Core routers
