I have the impression that the manual description is "one off". 

The manual says

0,1: do nothing
2  : glyph + kerns
3  : glyphs

But for me it looks like

0:   do nothing
1:   glyphs + kerns     
2,3: glyphs          

(I'm not quite sure regarding the kerns, as I don't really
understand which kerns should be affected by it. But it is rather
obvious that 0 is different to 1 and that 2 and 3 give always the
same output).
