native vs primary

I have been using gnus to hack away at my mail for about a year. Now I am
trying to understand it ...

Looking at the doc, "primary" seems to mean whatever gnus-select-method
points to which could be news or mail.

"native" is a confusingly similar term.

M-x A primary RET, produces 0 hits 

M-x A native RET, produces 1 hit ...

   gnus-group-clear-data-on-native-groups M-x ... RET
       Clear all marks and read ranges from all native groups.

I can't find "primary" in gnus.el, where "native" seems to mean

Is there any difference between "primary" and "native"?

Could we simplify the doc by bulk replacing "primary" with "native"?
