If both steel and carbon are supplied I would be amazed if the assembly instructions did not explain why they are there.
I understand the Timber battery space is pretty restricted so a steel rod alternative to carbon would certainly help obtain the desired CofG.

Do you know how to balance the model? If so, place the battery pack, or an equivalent weight in the battery compartment. Now try each set of rods and see how the balance looks.
