Stats on shields

Hopefully one of you fellow exiles can point me In The right direction with a question I have. When crafting/using shields does the health damage and armor penetration on the shield actually do anything? Or is it just durability that matters?

I believe it counts when you fight with it equipped. For example, when you do combos with a shield and any one handed weapons.

Thank you both for your responses. It this is one of the problems I’ve run into on my search for info. Both logical standpoints that go in opposite directions.
I wonder could @Ignasi poke the dev guys for a response on the verdict?
