Default Case Conference - privileged?

My understanding is that a settlement conference is privileged and the judge at the settlement conference is not the same judge as the one for trial. Because of this, both parties can talk frankly and know that what is presented is privileged.

How about @ case conference? My understanding is that the trial judge may be the same judge who presides over the case conference. Is this so? Can parties also speak frankly at the case conference knowing what is said there can't be used against them later?

Thanks
