'assistants' vs 'assistant_output' difference for file upload purpose?

According to here, a file purpose can be ‘assistants’ or ‘assistants_output’
What is the difference? Can I specify either of these two on upload?
When should I use which value?

I could not find this anywhere else in the documentation…

Good question, I am looking for an explaination too.

I think the difference is one is for what YOU upload and one is for what the code interpreter produces when requested to generate a file… I’m not 100% sure on this but that makes sense to me.
