What does the _bump endpoint do?

Path Finder

I saw an explanation of the "refresh", up the .conf files and I found the _bump command, but do not know what it is for.

Can someone help me?
Thank you!!

The _bump endpoint clears out the Splunk Web related cached items in client browsers, allowing new static content to load. It basically, forces all static files (.js, css etc) to be reloaded from the server and not from browser cache

This answer seems to contradict the linked documentation - the docs say _bump refreshes the server cache, and says "Clear the browser cache to update the client side."
