In BRM step "Define Role", under "Role Mapping" sub menu, there is a check box option called 'Consider Parent Assignment Approver' that allows you to map the parent role approvers to the mapped roles (also called child roles).
With this configuration checked, ideally the parent role approvers should also become the mapped role approvers, overriding any approver the mapped role might have.
This configuration works when both mapped role and its parent role are present on the same path in the request.
