What does these do or mean? I am asking here because I thought that others might want to know too. I'll check my manual too.

Exclude From VStack
The Volume stack has been added sometime during the 9.x cycle and keeps track of the refraction indices of the materials that a ray passes through.
Basically it removes the need to air polygons when rendering realistic, refracting surfaces.
The Exclude option allows you to turn it off, i.e. for compatibility with older surfaces.
