What does configure as shared drive actually do?

What does "Configure this as a Shared Drive (Team Drive)?" actually mean? I know in the early days team drives had different APIs and were treated differently. Now they are essentially the same so I'm wondering what does rclone do that's unique with this compared to just a Google Drive config?

It changes the root ID. There are a few other little API changes as bits of the API still need to know that you are using a shared drive I think. Also you can't read the sizes used from a shared drive.

Not a great deal is the answer!
