What does 64 Nm or 47 ft-lb refer to?

OK, Im a bit confused here. In the second diagram it shows 64 Nm or 47 ft-lb pointing to the top of the strut assembly, yet it looks like the next diagram shows 37 Nm or 27 ft-lb pointing to the nut which goes on top of the shock. What does the 64 Nm or 47 ft-lb actually refer to? Is that shaft of the EDC shock supposed to be tightened? I thought the shaft just spins in place and the bolt (37 Nm or 27 ft-lb) on top of the strut is what you are actually worried about tightening.

This might be obvious, but I need some direction here
