What does "Custom Parallax" in the context of "Cube Maps" mean?

I haven't yet fully understood what "Custom Parallax" in the context of "Cube Maps" means. Why doesn't it work with the upright standing cuboid in the background?

    Frankly, I don't know why it doesn't work on the cube in the background. I've yet to have it give expected results, but I could certainly be expecting the wrong thing. Unfortunately the docs are quite vague here. 

    • The vague and often very technical docs are also something I'm often struggling with in the official Blender Online manual. I need to know what something is usefull for and I find illustrations and descriptions of how things work better than abstract mathematical formulas. As soon as I find more time for this I will drill the Blender programmers with questions 😉😁!
