What should Errors formula return when nothing goes wrong?

(preface: I am still relatively new to PowerApps)


General question about the Errors function: I was reading the official docs on how to use the Errors formula, and I am confused by something... (

The article first summarizes what the different possible ErrorKind error codes mean. Here it mentions that if there are no errors, it will put the error code ErrorKind.None in the Error column of the (presumably single record) table returned by Errors.
However, later the article mentions that if there are no errors, the same table will return empty.

At least for my level of understanding, this seems contradictory.
If there are no errors, ErrorKind.None is given which means the table returned should not be empty?

Is there some knowledge/context about these described behaviors that I'm not aware of which explains this? 
Alternatively, how should Errors behave when there is no error?
