Just to clarify, when you say "compound objects" you're not referring to a complex single-object model (i.e. single object with many datastreams) but actually to a multi-object model (many object linked via RELS-EXT), right?
It's usually the former that is referred to as complex and the latter as atomistic, see: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/FEDORA35/Content+Model+Architecture
FWIW, I usually prefer asserting part/membership relations in the child rather than parent object. If you have the Resource Index available, it's straightforward to query the relevant relationships for export.
