Can someone explain to me the difference between these two panels when using any of the transform tools? One says Orientation and the other Transform Orientations...

Just don't get it.

The Transform Orientations on the left are for the currently active tool only, it is saved independently for each tool gizmo in the toolbar like Move, Rotate, Scale or others.

The Transform Orientations on the center of the 3D View header are the global ones for the scene, used whenever invoking transform operators directly from hotkeys, rather than using the tools from the toolbar.
