Have you submitted documentation feedback? That is probably the best place for this kind of thing, since it will go directly to the doc writer who maintains the documentation that is confusing.

The user who tries to run the command; i.e.your user.

The machine on which the command is run. In case it is not obvious, the product allows you to run a command on a remote system from a local system, so for example you could prevent any access to a sensitive system, but then allow folks to run commands on that box from a controlled administration box.

The box from which you submit a command.

A group that, as its name implies, matches everybody/anybody.
