Models with Poisson constraints don't have noRounding=true

    Details

      Description

      When defining a model with a Poisson constraint with a global observable, the corresponding Poisson constraints is evaluated with noRounding=false, which means that the global observable value from the Asimov data set is treated as an integer, resulting in a wrong estimation of CLb and expected limits. 

       

      This is is not the case when defining the global observable as a real observable, because in that case the Poisson term has the flag noRounding=true.
