You look confused here: it's not doing either; it hides/shows *edits* by
registered users, while they were logged in.
Maybe we instead need to clarify that the selectors are about edits? The
confusion in comment 0 may be sign of a more general misunderstanding.
We currently say "minor edits", "patrolled edits" and "my edits"; we could also
say "automated edits", "anonymous edits" and "logged-in edits" instead of
"bots", "anonymous users" and "logged-in users".

Sure, but if they don't login we will never know that the edit was made by
them, while if they login the information will be stored forever.
