Not sure i understand. If the route is in the routing table then it will be used for forward traffic. There are routes that are not installed in the routing table eg. routes in the EIGRP topology table that are not actually installed in the routing table, but all routes once they have been installed in the routing table are used for forwarding traffic.

Was there a specific example you were thinking of ?
