Merge Mined Coins in PPLNS/Solo

Stupid question that doesn't seem clear in the documentation. What happens to the merge mined coins you pick up in PPLNS/Solo modes? I see that at least in solo for sure, you're credited for them, but how exactly? Do you get the specific coins dumped into that coin's bucket in your ProHashing account until you establish a wallet somewhere to send it to, or does it get paid out among your normal ratios the same way it would in FPPS? I don't want to be giving up coins if it is the former. Thanks for clarifying!

The merge mined coins get paid out in small amounts as if you're mining in FPPS mode, and they are done according to your payout proportions.

So even though I'm mining PPLNS for BTC, I'm still seeing SOME benefit to that mining, even while we wait to find our first block. Excellent. Thanks for the clarification!
