Some implicit field plugins (like the OpenVDB plugin) can be used both with implicit surfaces and with the volume primitive. This reflects that fact that implicit fields also happen to be a good way to represent volumes. In the case of OpenVDB, the choice of which primitive to use is predicated by the type of OpenVDB file you are using ("levelset" versus "fogvolume").
