Transparent proxy - sense? (comprehension question)

If a gateway is set to [Proxy -> transparent proxy] it will intercept and inspect web traffic according to application/content rules.
But those application/content rules will be applied anyway, even if the [Proxy] checkmark isn't set, so what is the sense of the [transparent Proxy] Setting?

(I'm not talking about intransparent=explicit proxy. My question is about transparent proxy versus no proxy)

 

Am I missing something obvious?
