KC37.1.b: What does "embedded features for copying multiple files" even mean?

Knowledge check 37.1.b has three sub-questions. The third sub-question is "tar has embedded features for copying multiple files". The expected answer is "false". I don't understand why this would be false. The tar command line can specify multiple files or directories, at least for creating a tar archive, and I believe it can also specify multiple tar archives for extraction. In what way does it NOT provide "embedded features for copying multiple files"?
