Integer files

I am studying a Rss file from one of our machine centers that has a Micrologix 1000 processor. In my practice programming sessions I have been using Binary Bits (B file) to control ladder functions. The person who wrote this program appears to have used the N file for ladder programs. Some of the XIO and XIC components have addresses in the N file. From what I can tell there are no whole numbers used for any of the decesions on any of the rungs.

Is this a standard practice in programming and if so is it better than using the B bit files? Or why use the N as opposed to the B files?

Just when I think I have a clue someone throws me a bone.
