I understand what it's saying, but I also can understand why it's not readily apparent (especially to a non-native speaker) because I'm having a hard time coming up with a clearer phrasing for it myself :). Maybe "Analogous to @+ for accessing captures via numeric indexes, %+ allows accessing named captures via the name"? If you want to access captures by their index, use @+ and @-; if you want to access (named) captures by name, use %+.
