I wouldn't worry about this.  It is used to "pass through" a physical device into a virtual machine such as a tape drive, an HBA, nic card, etc..

If you're not using it you can safely ignore

This is if you wanted to speciifically add a nic to a virtual machine.  If you want to use it for your typical vswitch configuration than it does not affect what you're trying to accomplish.
