Overwatch and elevation

I love this game. Despite many many hours, I’m still not sure about:

Is elevation applied to overwatch? ie. if there’s a enemy on roof a 2 story building and I want to overwatch him, do I need to set the cone but then also use mouse wheel to raise the elevation level?

And also:

Does using mouse wheel to set a narrower overwatch cone increase overwatch hit percent? Seems logical and there’s so much great logic in this game. Or is it just to set a cone that avoids possibly hitting my own guys?

You need to change elevation. There are cases where it raises on its own, but it is better to set it manually

No. It only allows you to more precisely select targets. But accuracy doesn’t change.
