If / is 6GB how can /boot be graranteed to be within the first 2GB of disk

I have a 2nd 18BG drive for /var

I feel like I'm going around in circles. Seems like you are saying /boot is
in "part3 is /" in your example and it's also part1.

Does --format-as=2 make part1 /boot? If so, why does it matter if / is 6GB
or 17GB?

Finally, in your example, why do you use --update-partitioned=/dev/sda
instead of --init-partitioned=/dev/sda?

Thanks for your patience with newbie's. I think you can sense how hard I'm
trying to understand.
