Do fractured parts and non fractured of the same part number need different DEVICE fields?

I have a component that I have both a HETERO (fractured, split) device along with a version that is not split. What I don't understand it why they cannot have the same DEVICE.
If they are, when I try to create a netlist I get Error 6318 Multiple symbols .... are inconsistent. and Error 6092: ... Bad hetero device ..., symbol...

What I have for files is something like this

foo.1 <= non-split version, DEVICE = foo

foo_split_1.1   DEVICE cannot = foo, changed to foo_split, HETERO = foo_split_1,foo_split_2

foo_split_2.1   DEVICE cannot = foo, changed to foo_split, HETERO = foo_split_1,foo_split_2

 

Errors are something like this when they are the same DEVICE.

This only on the non-split symbols

Error 6318 Multiple symbols <partition>:foo device foo are inconsistent.

And for the split (fractured) symbols:

Error 6092: <boardname> Bad hetero device foo, symbol <partition>:foo_split_1

Error 6092: ... Bad hetero device foo, symbol <partition>:foo_split_2

 

Thanks
