Connecting two sets of Multiplus 24V and 12V to one Octo GX?

We have three MultiPlus 24/5000/120-100 230V and two MultiPlus 24/3000/70-50 120V on our new boat under construction, all connected to one battery bank. We would like to connect the second group of MultiPlus to the OctoGX with a MK3-USB. There is no real manual for the OctoGX. In the manual for the CCGX under the heading Connecting multiple VE.Bus systems to a single CCGX, it says if you do this, "The CCGX will not send proper data to VRM any more. The Venus GX does send information of both systems to VRM: its therefor better to use a Venus GX for systems like this."

My question is does the Octo handle this more like the Venus GX or more like the CCGX? And second question is could the new CerboGX handle this situation as well or better than the Venus?

Thanks in advance for any help.
