Calibre tags and Kindle Collections

I've been using Calibre for my Sony and would like to start using it for my Kindle DXG. How does the whole thing work in terms of organizing stuff on the device? If I've made a "Collection" on the Kindle already, and have a tag with the same name in Calibre, will it merge those? Or would I wind up with two seperate "Science Fiction" collections on my home screen?

The tags on Calibre and on the Kindle do not have anything to go with each other unfortunately
Once you send the books to the Kindle you are going to have to assign the books to the category on the Kindle

So if I've tagged something with Calibre it is completely meaningless to the Kindle (unlike the Sony)? That only affects how it's managed on my computer?
