Looking to confirm the set-up of power cables tracks with measuring total current output

Hey there. Just looking to confirm the organization of power cables and what the AC current sensor is measuring as it’s not evident in either the diagrams or video.

In the photo below, I’ve laid out two illustrations. The top illustration is what I believe to be the set up of cables according to what’s seen in the video – please correct me if it’s wrong. If that’s the case, the AC current sensor is measuring only the power control box and not the devices connected to the power strip.

I’m wondering whether there was any particular reason that the set-up as shown in the bottom-most illustration wasn’t selected, as that would allow current sensing for both the power strip and power control box.

The lower illustration is how it is set up, measuring power consumption of all devices.
