In general, completely independent of the type of the work item, there are two categorizations for work items. Execution items and plan items. Execution items (task, defect), are not marked as plan items and track effort done to achieve them. Plan items usually roughly estimate the complexity of doing them and aggregate effort by child execution items. explains how the bars work based on these concepts.
