Curious about max bounces.

In this video you open up the bounces and say "16 is enough" (diffuse bounces are set to 16, but 'total' is set to 8"

Does total not mean what i think it means in blender?

There's a glossy and transparent material in the scene too, so arent they each getting at least one bounce each? 

Does that come from the "total" budget?

Thanks :)
