SC4S config (env_file) syntax question

We had a system integrator install and configure SC4S, and I'm trying to understand the configuration afterwards.  I've been going through this document, and I'm confused by something pretty early on.

The document says I should see the following in env_file:

SC4S_DEST_SPLUNK_HEC_DEFAULT_URL=https://splunk.smg.aws:8088
SC4S_DEST_SPLUNK_HEC_DEFAULT_TOKEN=a778f63a-5dff-4e3c-a72c-a03183659e94
#Uncomment the following line if using untrusted SSL certificates
#SC4S_DEST_SPLUNK_HEC_DEFAULT_TLS_VERIFY=no

Instead, this is what I see:

 

 

 

SPLUNK_HEC_URL=<***my urls***>
SPLUNK_HEC_TOKEN=<***my token***>
#Uncomment the following line if using untrusted SSL certificates
SC4S_DEST_SPLUNK_HEC_TLS_VERIFY=no

 

 

 

This clearly works, but I'd like to understand why.  Is "SPLUNK_HEC_URL" functionally equivalent to "SC4S_DEST_SPLUNK_HEC_DEFAULT_URL" and likewise "SPLUNK_HEC_TOKEN"?  Is the documentation old, or is my sc4s old?
