Linear referencing vs. location referencing

ArcMap had linear referencing (dynamic segmentation in ArcWorkstation) which could create and overlay point and line event tables along routes. ArcGIS Pro also has the linear referencing toolbox, but no explanation in help or tutorials. But in Pro there is also a location referencing toolbox, which seem similar but is linked to Pipline Referencing (new to Pro) and seems to need additional licensing. Can anyone explain the differences between the two, and point me to any documentation or tutorials (besides just the tool references)? As well, is pipeline referencing designed as a way to work with utilities in a file geodatabase, as opposed to the new Utilities extension which needs an enterprise geodatabase?
