It also implies that more thought was added to it, for example you can say “to my knowledge” or “to the best of my knowledge”, the 2nd of which indicates that the knowledge has been carefully thought through, if that makes sense. Honestly, “best” on this context is more of a filler word than anything else.

A: Comprehension requires significant thought by the person comprehending, rather than just being told.

However, when you comprehend something, you also understand it.
