Re: VirtualBox: stretch-backports vs third-party repository

So I'm going to install VirtualBox from stretch-backports. If I enter
apt -t stretch-backports install virtualbox
the manpages package will be upgraded to the version found in
stretch-backports and packages like linux-headers will be taken from
stretch-backports. Is that the reason, that the VirtualBox wiki page
says, that the command
apt install virtualbox
should be used?
