Body armor hard plates, do you need trauma pads?

Do you need trauma pads behind a hard armor plate thats a (stand alone) I seen testing on hard armor and sometimes there is dimples-force applied back to the wearer, but this is only on higher rounds such as 308 and 7.62x54R.

At 9:44 in this video there is a dimple on the other side.

I guess that could really hurt the wearer.

Or would just a plain LVL IIA, II or IIA pad versus the trauma pad be better, as I under stand it trauma pads don't stop bullets, just catch blunt force, so soft armor be better?
SHTF vs TEOTWAWKI you ask? SHTF, just some crap on the ceiling and walls, TEOTWAWKI end of the world as we know it. Orignally made by 9mm/®™©
