When point is at the beginning or end of the buffer, i.e. before the
first character or after the last character, so that you can insert
text before or after those characters resp.  If text was always inserted
before or after the character point was on [sic], you'd need a special
way to handle the beginning and end of the buffer.

Thanks responding this question.

Understand from here, that the way to insert doesn't
change. Only the location of the point after insertion
- before or after inserted text - differs.

So far still in the dark.
