Let me try to describe it in other words.
We have 4 punctuation verbosity settings that can be cycled
through using NVDA+P. They are None, Some, Most and All. All is
clear - just read all punctuation signs. But for many people
that's too much punctuation. So we want to make some of the "not
so important" punctuation signs to be ignored by speech
synthesizer. There comes "Most" setting. How do we decide which
punctuation signs are to be ignored when the setting is set to
most? The ones that are marked "All" in the punctuation dialog.
And the ones that will be still pronounced are the ones that are
marked with "Most" and above ("All", "None")
Same thing for the next verbosity level "Some". Only the
characters marked "Some" and above ("All") will be pronounced.
I assume in some cases you want to ignore all punctuation, so you
set punctuation verbosity to "None". In this case only the
characters marked with level "None" will be reported, such as
fractions, which are arguably should never be skipped over.
Hope this explanation helps.

Unless I see a technical document describing the
interactions I will never understand this. For the vulgur
fractions, for instance, things like the one-third or five-eighths
symbols these are all noted as level "none" and have nothing for
the preservation level (though I get that if it's none you
wouldn't likely pass it to the synth, so I presume the default
absent a value is never). I don't understand how a recipe that
uses the one-third symbol, which is not uncommon before the word
cup, would ever read correctly. The one-third symbol in
symbols.dic, is given a replacement value of one-third, but a
level of none.
By the way, and I don't think I introduced this error,
the five-eighths symbol has a replacement value of five eighths,
but there is no tab after the S in eighths and it runs straight
into the word none that follows it. All others have that tab
after the replacement value.
