What is 'Add Data' in the Extend pool interface?

In 11.3 RC2 you can add a disk as a striped disk to a pool using the Extend option, but there's also an Add Data button which enlarges the pool by the same amount, yet its distinct. What's the difference? I didn't see an explanation in the docs....

"Add Data" adds a new data vdev. If you want to stripe another single disk to a pool with the extend item just click "Add Data" and put a single disk in that data vdev.

I think I understand... I’m going to have to reread the whole raid section again.
