I don't think it's as much a matter of how LoTW expects them as much as it 
is a matter that they have to be exactly the same in both logs in order for 
the QSO to 'match'.

As far as using the QSO credit for an award, I don't think there are 
'satellite specific' awards but you'd probably have to check with the 
individual awards manager to determine what the criteria is for the 
specific award.
