Rmail: 'reply' vs 'reply-all'?

I'm familiar with Emacs (using version 25.1), but new to Rmail, which
I've been testing. My quick question is: is there a simple key
distinction between 'reply' and 'reply-all' in Rmail?

In more detail, the Emacs manual, specifically,

suggests (on my reading) that typing 'r' will add the 'CC' field to the
header if the incoming message contains recipients in this field. In
contrast, typing 'C-u r' will omit the 'CC' field entirely.

Unfortunately, in my testing, typing 'r' (like 'C-u r') omits the 'CC'
field when the incoming message contains recipients in this field, and I
have to add this field manually if I want to have it.

Am I missing something obvious? (My customizations are minimal and don't
concern 'reply' in Rmail.) Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,
