You need to test out. I can not say what will happen in case of Purchase Order. Gut feel since component E is not in active integration model, the PO when transferred back from R/3 to APO will drop component B in APO.
But more importantly component E will not be there in APO.
At least that would be the case for Production Order.
However if you re-explode the Production Order in APO it will pick up component B (since it is there in the APO PPM/PDS) and get transferred back to R/3.
Purchase Order components can not be changed in APO.
