If you by that mean TOS 1.x then it can't. You need TOS 2.x, EmuTOS, MagiC or MiNT to use RAM above 4Mb.

Not sure what you mean by "primary RAM", but MonSTer alt-RAM always (well, there is one exception) starts at adress 4194304, i.e. immediately after the 4Mb of ST-RAM. This is called "alt-RAM", TT-RAM is something else and is not available on 68000-computers since TT-RAM is outside of 68000 address range.

Mega STE VME address range starts at 10Mb, so you can't have alt-RAM above that. Unless you put alt-RAM in the VME-slot of course, but MonSTer does not do that.

There is nothing to worry about, it just works.
