Fractal Terrains 3+ paintbrush options checkbox

Apologies if this has been answered somewhere obvious, but I haven't been able to find it: In the paintbrush options window at the bottom of the Fractal Terrains window, there is a checkbox labeled simply "B". There are no tooltips or, as far as I can tell, documentation for this box—in fact, in any documentation I can find with pictures of the paintbrush options, the box doesn't exist. So what does it do?

    It's safest to assume that checkbox controls an experimental feature that accidentally escaped into the wild. Under ideal conditions, it will control the base altitude for values for paintbrushes. It's hard to get the right conditions in FT at this point, though, so I recommend ignoring that feature for now.

    I had wanted to be able to push out roads and houses with a brush, but it's twitchier than it should have been and I didn't hide the controls that let those things work.
