Aggregated records behave differently than ordinary records.

Programmatically, an ordinary record is an ERec object while an aggregated record is an AggrERec object.

Two of the major differences between the two types of records are in their representative values and sorting behavior:

The presentation developer has more power over retrieving the representative values. The individual records are returned with the aggregated record. Therefore, the developer has all the information necessary to correctly represent aggregated records (at the cost of increased complexity). However, to achieve the desired sort behavior, the MDEX Engine must be configured correctly, because the internals of this operation are not exposed to the presentation developer.
