What users do I see, when I click "Mange User" or "Site Users"...

Hi to all,

what  users do I see, when I click "Mange User" or "Site Users"

 Online Help states:

"Click 'Site Users' to manage accounts that have been given direct access to the site. "

 What does this exactly mean. Can someone give an example?

I thought I see all users that have access to the site, but that's obviously wrong.

    When a user is granted access to a SharePoint Site it can be through a SharePoint Group (preferred) or by granting direct access to the site. This is evident from 'Site Actions -> Site Settings -> People and Groups -> New -> Add User. In the Give Permissions section you can select a SharePoint Group or grant direct site access. The 'Site Users' link on the Manage Users page shows the accounts that have direct access to the site.
