Cape EEPROM and DTS file for I2C-2

I’m making a cape that has several devices on the BBB’s i2c-2 bus. Should I:

1.) Set the bits in the EEPROM for i2c2? (in which case I think the mode bits should be 0x73?)
2.) Create the I2C-2 fragment in the dts?

Since i2c-2 is enabled by default, do I need to explicitly set it? (this is the motivation behind the questions above). I noticed the Weather cape just added the drivers for the attached modules and did not specifically create an i2c-2 fragment:
