Rebuilding in place means "take the existing model and try to adjust it by
local rebuilding to fit the density better" (...and add water molecules to
unexplained density). I think that the name leaves something to be
desired, but the procedure works well when you have pretty much the whole
thing and you just want to make a better model.
In your case, it would be best to put in the model, but to let AutoBuild
build the remainder of the structure from the map.
