Think of the core 5.1 outputs on the rear of the receiver. Set these up as you'd expect.

The other 2 channels can be assigned in the settings as rears of a 7.1 speaker surround, or as Atmos speakers, of which type you select in the settings to match the sort of Atmos speakers you have. It will then send the correct signal and won't be sending rear surround activity to the Atmos speakers.
