My interpretation:

Some relationship of exit pupil and eye "box". The eye can be moved around the ideal focal point some while still maintaining a full, mostly clear image. C_Does and 9-Hole Reviews have some great optic review videos, often showcasing the eye "box".

Whereas moving the eye 0.020" from ideal alignment would be obvious with a 0.040" aperture and 3" eye relief, many scopes wouldn't show misalignment unless they're rigidly fixed and the parallax is way off, say 30yds when shooting at 300yds. The reticle is relatively small compared to the ~1.5" ocular lens.
