Gnome Menu curosity question ?!?

Dumb, dumb, question that has been bugging me for years.  On the Gnome
Menu, what is the difference between 'Applications => System Tools' and
'Preferences => Administration'?  There seems to be no rhyme or reason
why some applications are placed in one category rather than another.

I find it a PIA remembering where seldom used applications are.  I have
reorganized the menu several times to reflect my personal definition.
However with every new Fedora version I lose my reorganized menu files.

Perhaps if I had a reasonable explanation that made sense, I would have
an aide de memoire to guess more correctly where a program is.
