In kile, there is a setting:

LaTeX -> Bibliography -> Settngs -> Settings for biblatex

I would like to know the following regarding this setting:

(a) what does it do? (because there doesn't seem to be any difference between choosing bibtex and biblatex); and

(b) assuming (a) does something useful to me, to make the selection of biblatex persistent across different kile sessions. AFAIK, I need to set it afresh each time I open up kile.

Switching my comment to an answer

At the moment this setting is useless. By choosing LaTeX -> Bibliography -> book you will get all allowed keys of biblatex and normal bibliography-styles. For example: lastchecked isn't defined by jurabib and biblatex instead both packages provide the key urldate.
