Question About SRB SW Flux Products

I understand that the SW flux products are defined at a waveband of 0.2 - 4 micron. There is some leftover solar flux energy beyond 4 microns, but I could not find any mention in the site documents of whether or not this residual flux is corrected for in the data? Could you provide some guidance on this?

We do account for energy past 4 microns by putting it into the solar output in the last band we use, which is 0.7-4.0 microns. The result for SRB Release 3.0 is a Total Solar Irradiance of 1367 W/m2.
