What does "expand" mean in component browser?

If the component browser is displaying components “In Model”, the command options (accessed by the right pointing arrow) include “expand”. If you select it, a check mark appears next to it. What does it do?

Expanding a component will show all the sub-components within that component. You’ll typically see that option if you import a nested component.

This shows the component browser after I imported a SketchUp model into a new session.

And this shows the results of expanding. All the components I used in modeling the desk now show up.
