Multidomain - multiple protein domains in the same protein. Most eukaryotic proteins are like that.

Multimeric (not multimetric) - multiple proteins that interact together and form some kind of a complex. Can be either homomultimers (identical subunits interacting) or heteromultimers (different subunits interacting).

You have been at this for quite some time, and I am surprised that you never encountered these terms. Or are you just extra cautious as a relative beginner?

You have been at this for quite some time, and I am surprised that you never encountered these terms. --- my background is in electrical engineering. I am learning this by self-study.
