how mfilter does manage short-circuits (caps,io lines) ?

I was designing with MFILTER a non-tapped combline filter and forgot to set smd caps to 0603.

There are short-circuits between 0805 caps and coupled lines.

Moreover, I don't know why, non tapped combline have always io lines in the same axis than coupled lines. This makes short-circuits with coupled lines.

However mfilter seems able to simulate the combline filter.

Q1 : How does it work ?

Q2 : when do we need to turn the io lines, before or after optimization ?
