It installs a chain of them with the protocols identified. All the
properties you set are set on each of the chained plugins, so they have
the same meaning/use. You can in general set anything that you can set on
those older elements and they'll be picked up, or ignored, as the case may

The probable answer is that it's not set. I don't know which ones you're
wondering about, but setting entityID basically sets, well, entityID.
That's it. The rest are not set or defaulted.

There are few cases where it would ever make sense to do them anymore
unless you're using plugins other than Shib1, SAML2, WAYF, or SAMLDS.
