[Unbound-users] what does list_stubs do?

I noticed that there is an option named 'list_stubs' for unbound-control.
Here is the introduction of it on manual pages for unbound-control:

              List the stub zones in use.  These are printed one by one to the
              output.  This includes the root hints in use.

What does 'in use' mean?
What will happen to the result after querying unbound for the exact RR
records if I set stub_prime?

e.g.  stub-zone:

        name: "example"
        stub-prime: yes

RRset on
example. IN NS ns1
ns1 IN A
