Sorry, I haven't understood that.  How so?
What does the doc/help tell us about their
importance for "this feature"?

I see.  I don't see that in Emacs releases.
Presumably it is new for Emacs 28.  So does
this command describe the mode?  Or does it
just list key bindings (as `describe-keymap'

So are there multiple repeat maps?  And what
about what you hinted above - that this command
describes `repeat-mode'?  Is there perhaps a
`repeat-mode-map', and is this about that?

Not clear to me (not that that matters).
