Isn't that quote simply referring to not being able to tell how it works and what its limits are, if you don't know about them?

It seems to me that GM's who don't know or care can and will continue to not know or care, but for GM's who are interested and would like to give some thought to their cosmology, and have some satisfyingly self-consistent understanding of it, that doesn't really add much except as a reminder that probably only some Mnoren would know about such things.

Yes. I think that's an interesting dynamic to play with, which can work out in all sorts of ways.
