Solution
As the name implies, these functions hide (hide) or lock (lock) that over (above) them. Moreover, they are not strictly in the layers panel, and artborne i.e. visually overlapping the selected object/group.

An example with arbitrary objects. All the squares are single objects, and the orange is a group (and therefore painted similar).

If you select the green square and use these functions, the hidden/blocked are:
• in the left example, the red and orange group;
• in the right example — only red because it is on top of the green one.

The result is hide in the image below.

The effect applied to individual objects (red) and for groups (orange). If the above are objects of other layers (layers), they will also be hidden/blocked.
Nice addition Paul did not know nothing of what you said. - brandt_Ernser commented on July 5th 19 at 00:10

Option "Object -> Hide -> All Artwork Above Object -> Hide -> All illustrations of the above" allows you to hide all of the overlying, not grouped, intersecting with the original shape objects.

Option "Object -> Lock> All Artwork Above Object -> Lock -> All of the above illustration" allows you to block all the overlying, not grouped, intersecting with the original shape objects.
