Re: OVERRIDES v2

I took the occasion to check what is the mechanism of overriding.

Below what myself found in Bitbake User Manual, ch. 3.3. Conditional
Syntax
(Overrides) "You can use OVERRIDES to ... conditionally append or
prepend the value of a variable."
This is the point where I wonder why overriding is discussed in
context of append and prepend.
Which element of appending and prepending operations has the nature of
overriding other things?

k.d.
I am also not comfortable with two first examples provided in chapter myself
referred previously too.
The first one, short one: why is "_nooverride = blabla" component
necessary?
Will variable default value not suffice?

The second one, longer one: It does not include the OVERRIDES = "blabla"
component.
Hence, the question is this override-code complete?
Regarding second point in my post above I see example for kernel seems to use
overrides-interface component, which however takes place in different code
thus not visible in shown example yet chapter didn't presented (even short reference)
in chapter prior to example presentation . That comment is obsolete.
