Thanks a lot for your clarification. I was asking about redistribution. I doubt it's in icnd2, but just not certain.

It's important to realize that the EIGRP metric (bandwidth/delay by default as Iris said) is not sent with updates. It is a local value, known as the "K values" which is configured using the command "metric weights" command under router config mode. A router receives the metric from it's neighbor (which was derived from the neighbors bandwidth/delay).

Keep in mind that the routing table that you see from
"show ip route" only shows the BEST routes for each destination shown.
Each routing protocol makes its own table of valid routes.
That is, there is a RIP-specific table. "show ip rip database"
There is also an EIGRP-specific table: "show ip eigrp topology"
The FIB that you see from "show ip route" includes the collection of the valid longest-prefix, lowest-AD routes. that come from all the concerned input tables, and includes connected and static routes.
this is how this table is populated:
longest-prefix is preferred (most specific match to the route)
if that ties, then obviously, you want lowest AD (most trustworthy routing protocol for the route)
if that ties, then you want the lowest metric (most efficient route)
if you are still tied, load-balance (within routing protocol parameters, some allow you to fudge this, within constraints)
I am not sure if this was part of your question or not, but I hope it helps.
