DesignBuilder uses EnergyPlus as a simulation engine. In EnergyPlus the ZoneHVAC:Baseboard:RadiantConvective object allows you to assign surfaces which are absorbers of the object's radiant heat.

See: ZoneHVAC:Baseboard:RadiantConvective documentation for the field set: Surface Name, Fraction of Radiant Energy to Surface
