Some questions about one example in model library

I am redoing the example of "Terzaghi Compaction", and I have some questions or confusions:

1) In the "Darcy's law----> storage model" section after part "Definition", we just need to set K as K_s, but not point out specific K_s, K_s in "variable" or "Variable 2"? How to distinguish the two when computing?

2) In the "Darcy's law----> storage model" section after part "Materials", we should follow "From the Fluid material list, choose fluid", that means the fluid properties in storage model should come from "Material----->fluid", but we didn't set the properties of solid particles, and set it default as "domain materials", why?
