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 10.11.0.0/16 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 10.11.0.0/16 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 10.11.0.0/16 and uses the smallest one to advertise the summary route to Core routers
