Need documentation on the wipe feature

Under Printer Settings -> Extruder 1 -> Retraction is a field for entering "retract amount before wipe". The tooltip does not explain well exactly how this works, and I wasn't able to find a definition in the documentation.

From my testing it appears that the higher this percentage is set, the smaller the travel distance of the wipe movement - presumably higher percentages mean the extruder stops extruding sooner so less travel is needed to empty the nozzle?

I would appreciate a good explanation on the algorithm behind it, and perhaps the explanation could be added to the knowledge base?
