To answer you question in the Admin guide his the functions of the stack ports:
Ports in a stack must be reserved to be one of the following port types:
• Network Ports—Also known as uplink ports. These are ports that are connected to the network.
• Stack Ports—Ports that connect two units in a stack. Stack ports are used to transfer data and protocol packets among the units. You must indicate to the system (reserve) which ports you plan to use as stack ports (in the System Mode and Stack Management page). All ports that are not reserved to be stack ports, are considered to be network ports.

That about th eports I know but it's stupid that when we want to use the 5G stack ports that are only there to stack we also loose XG3 en XG4. It would be nice if we could leave XG1 to 4 as network ports and only the 5G ports as stack ports.
