VSE Scan Summary, what do the counters really mean

I have been puzzled by entries of this type below where we see a number for "files with detections" in the vse88 on demand scan summary file

I'm trying to understand what is the difference between "Files with detections" and "File detections". At this stage, I have been unable to get a straight answer from support.

Neither ePO nor the machine's event log provide additional information: I do not get an entry that tells me what file had a detection, just an event 1038 "Scan found infected files" in ePO.
