B-factor refinement does refine B-factors (change B-factors) and
coordinate refinement does refine coordinates (change coordinates). In
turn, B-factor refinement does not change coordinates, and coordinate
refinement does not change B-factors. And if you do both, then
coordinates and B-factors will be changed, obviously.
