Incorrectly settable Global Preferences affect Local Preferences

I am searching for documentation on the Global Preference options with two checkboxes for each option.

They are in the Global References/User Profile/Email options and in the Global References/Editing options.

I am unclear about their purpose, and why they are needed. But in my case, they can be set incorrectly and saved. Thus displaying incorrect info in the Local Preferences. In either case, an incorrectly set option adversely affects the same options in the Local Preferences.

The cheapest suggestion is to, eliminate the grey coloration of the checkboxes and display their status clearly, would be very helpful.
