"accept_ra 1" vs "accept_ra 2" in interfaces configuration-file


According to "man interfaces" "accept_ra 1" makes interface to accept
IPv6 RA messages. "accept_ra 2" does the same and in addition, it also
enables forwarding. What does the forwarding mean in this context? One
could think, that it modifies the /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/*/forwarding
file(s), but this does not seem to be the case.
