What does the 'Group' setting mean

Students in a class may be assigned to a group (details here)
The 'Sort by group first' setting will take this group into account when sorting so that all students from the same group are kept together and then sorted.

Here an example:
The first image on the left shows a list of students that has been sorted with the 'Sort by group first' setting disabled.
The image on the right, shows the same list, but with 'Sort by group first' setting enabled.
The group to which they belong is shown below each student.
