Manufacturing Variance

Can someone clarify for me this issue?

The Manufacturing Variance Account is the dumping account for cost
differences from standard costs in a job, differences in the bom from actual
and will also collect all costs left to a job if parts are not received and
the job is simply closed. The reason I ask this is that I am on Vantage 6.1
patch 529. I have relabeled the manufacturing variance account to be an R&D
account. Therefore, I input time, parts, etc. into a job and at the end of
the month close the job. theoretically, (if my assumptions above are
correct), all these costs should then hit the manufacturing variance account
(R&D account). This appears to have worked for the materials but the labor
and burden hit our WIP account instead. any ideas why? Could this be
because of how the parts or groups are classified and their default accounts
(although I don't believe so).

Thanks.
