Difference between Virtual Users start sequentially and Ramp Up Load Variation Policy?

To ramp up virtual users over a period of time, I see two options.

First, in Advanced Population Parameters, there's an option for virtual users to start sequentially, over a period of X seconds.

Second, in Load Variation Policy, there's the Ramp Up option, where the initial user number, increment, and maximum users can be chosen.

What is the difference between these?

Thank you.

Option 2. is linear, 5 users every 10 seconds repeat until 25 users are on, etc. Option 1 is decided by Neoload, so 25 users will start within 50 seconds, but it's completely random
