What exactly is the difference between Copy From and Refer To a Data Page?

In our app, we have a Page List Property that's populated by a Data Page. I've noticed the two options 'Refer to a Data Page' and 'Copy From a Data Page' have the following descriptions:

Copy From:

When the parameter values being passed to the data page change and a non-parameter value is referenced, a new data page is loaded and copied into this property. Interactions with the property happen on the copied data.

Refer To:

When data page parameters change and reference to a non-parameter value is made, the system loads a new data page. Reads from and writes to the property occur on the new data page.

I've been scratching my head to understand what exactly is going on here. What does the description mean by parameter and non-parameter values? The description of Refer To seems to me like it's just creating a new Data Page and copying in data... which I'd assume Copy To is supposed to do.

Any clarifications around this would be super helpful.
