Implications of making a call as part of resources vs. it's own exec

Thus far in my adventures with Gatling har files I have converted to Scala code have behaved how I expect them too. When the resources method is generated what I see makes sense, a bunch of external javascripts, css, etc. In my current task I have found that some of our api calls are showing up in the resources section of the generated code. This creates chaos as we have prototyped our system to only fetch resources when using the resources method. I can move these API calls into their own exec chain, but I don’t really know how that would impact the overall simulation. Could someone more knowledgable clue me in on what type of implications doing this would have?
