Tool Containment and offsets

Hi, I have studied the tool containment choices in Pocket Clear op. I have added offsets. 

What is tool containment used for? take a groove in a body one inch wide. all 3 tool containment choices still cut 1 inch wide.  Does offset just move tool containment ? 

is it used to move end mill travel to clear parts that are to close together? like 2 d contour for part edges. JR

You can use it to allow the tool to complete a fillet.   
if the tool is centred on the edge and no more it can’t move over enough to let the cutting edge finish the bottom of the fillet
