What exactly does the "Current" column in conflict dialog box refer to?

I recently started a new position at work where I am reconciling and posting versioned data to our SDE geodatabase and I am confused as to what the Current column refers to. I am new to working with versioned data, so I apologize if this is a dumb question. Here's a screenshot of the dialog box from ESRI:

My coworker who's training me said that the current column refers to what is currently in the SDE, but it seems that that is actually what the Common Ancestor column is according to the "Quick tour of reviewing conflicts" page on the ESRI website. I then thought that it must be the newest version of the data then, but then I came across a feature where the Pre-Reconcile version has a more recent date modified than the current. Plus, when I accept a pre-reconcile feature, the current column updates to reflect the pre-reconcile info. So what exactly is the relationship between Current and the other columns? I haven't been able to find an exact answer in the ESRI documentation, but perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
