DESeq2 normalization when using with derfinder

I have a question about whether I should set the sizeFactors to 1 prior to using DESeq2 on the counts obtained from derfinder. I have normalized bigwig files ( using deepTools ), which I use as input to derfinder. Following the instructions in the users guide :
My doubt is that if the counts obtained by derfinder are already from normalized bigwig files, whether I should set the sizeFactors to 1 before running the DESeq function.

Thank you,

Code should be placed in three backticks as shown below

# include your problematic code here with any corresponding output 
# please also include the results of running the following in an R session 

## Determine the files to use and fix the names
files_RZ <- list.files(path="C:/Users/rnaseq_RZ/", pattern=".*bw$",full.names=T)

names(files_RZ) <- gsub("", "", basename(files_RZ))

## Load the data from disk -- On Windows you have to load data from Bam files
fullCov_RZ <- fullCoverage(files = files_RZ, chrs=chrs, verbose = FALSE)

## Get the region matrix of Expressed Regions (ERs)
regionMat_RZ <- regionMatrix(fullCov_RZ, cutoff = 30, L = 100, verbose = FALSE)

# Combine into a single one

## First extract the data
regs <- unlist(GRangesList(lapply(regionMat_RZ, '[[', 'regions')))
covMat <-, lapply(regionMat_RZ, '[[', 'coverageMatrix'))
## Force the names to match
names(regs) <- rownames(covMat) <- seq_len(length(regs))
## Combine into a list (not really needed)
mergedRegionMat_RZ <- list('regions' = regs, 'coverageMatrix' = covMat)

## Round matrix
counts_RZ <- round(mergedRegionMat_RZ$coverageMatrix)



dds_RZ <- DESeqDataSetFromMatrix(countData = counts_RZ,
                              colData = coldata,
                              design = ~ condition)

dds2_RZ <- DESeq(dds_RZ)
