I struggle to understand the core difference between Embark and

In terms of Embark, the context around point is called /target/. So if
the target is a filename, then the default action is to visit the
file. If the default action is not what you want, then Embark can
present you with a context menu - you can choose amongst the actions
that can be executed on the file, like deleting it or locating it in a
dired buffer.

In terms of Hyperbole, the contextual information is called /implicit
button/. Pressing M-RET on it sounds very much the same as executing
the default action in terms of Embark.

Embark defines the following targets: file, symbol, URL, s-expression,
defun, etc. It seems it is conceptually the same as implicit buttons in
Hyperbole. Is this correct?
