Agree its a bit confusing.
However not every data type has its own selection state as with
objects and bones.

Using this outliner selection you can search & select any number of
mesh datablocks (not mesh objects), and make them local-user, add fake
user etc.
There are other operations which apply to World, Group, Materials in a list etc.

You could imagine some other way to perform these same actions - just
noting having outliner selection isn't redundant.
