Dependence of mesh on contacts and joints

I have a general question on mesh dependency that I have not been able to answer through documentation.

I have noticed that sometimes when modifying a contact or a joint in Mechanical, the mesh generated for the corresponding parts is erased and a new mesh is needed. I am attributing this to a underlying dependency of mesh automatic controls on this, nevertheless I would like to find some documentation on this.

Has anyone experienced this too?

What kind of modification are you making on a joint?  

When modifying contact properties, such as type of contact, I have not seen any remesh required.

Can you show an example of a change in contact or joint that causes a remesh?
