They do the same thing, that is exactly what is confusing.

   See the discussion in this thread (almost 3 years ago):


You mean each time a user is confused by a menu item, they should just
search the emacs-devel archives for an explanation?

That thread was mainly concerned with other stuff, but I believe the
only real problem was that "Describe Key" did not make it clear that
it also applies to menu items.  "Describe Key or Menu Item" does make
this clear.
