xfce4-session-logout to power off computer

I have been using

xfce4-session-logout --halt

in a script in MXLinux to power off the computer.  After reading about halt in other contexts, I wonder why this works!  For example,
https://unix.stackexchange.com/question … f-and-halt

halt terminates all processes and shuts down the cpu.  poweroff is exactly like halt, but it also turns off the unit itself (lights and everything on a PC).

Could someone explain exactly what the --halt switch means in xfce4-session-logout?
