It could just mean that these examples don't need an auxiliary image.

Take the first example from NEWS:

  isabelle jedit -R HOL-Number_Theory

It produces an image
"HOL-Number_Theory_requirements(HOL-Computational_Algebra)", see also
the title line of Isabelle/jEdit.

It also puts you into the ROOT entry for HOL-Number_Theory, so you can
directly explore its theories in the Prover IDE.
