Difference between AutomaticStopAction and OfflineAction?

Server2012r2 cluster, 2 nodes, multiple VMs

If I look at a VM in hyper-v Manager | Settings, I find an Automatic Stop Action parameter.

I can list all the values for that parameter with:
Get-VM | ft Name, AutomaticStopAction

But if I run this I get the OfflineAction parameter:
Get-ClusterResource | ?{$_.ResourceType.Name -eq "Virtual Machine"} | Get-ClusterParameter OfflineAction

The AutomaticStopAction is mostly set to Saved.  The OfflineAction parameter is 1, in every case.

Is there a relationship between these two parameters?

Thanks.

AutomaticStopAction is used to determine what action the VM will take when the Hyper-V host shuts down.
See the section for AutomaticStopAction here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh848575.aspx

OfflineAction is used to determine what action the VM will take when the failover cluster shuts down.
