i7+ Small channel in docking station?

I've looked at an i7+, at least dummy unit, in a local BB&B.

The port on the docking unit that empties the Roomba seems very small. Does debris ever get stuck on the way out? What happens to larger objects that the Roomba picks up (such as plant debris)? I assume they are left in the vacuum.

From what I’ve seen with mine if the robot can pick it up it will end up in the bag. But if it picks up something like a larger stiff limb it will not suck it through and up into the bag. If the leaf or limb is soft it will suck it right up. It’s very powerful. I have never had it get clogged up yet. If it were to clogg there’s a few screws on the back to take it apart.
I love mine!!
