Is there a difference between "not from current website" and "3rd party"?

"not from current or previously visited websites" allows for HTTP redirects to count as "previously visited websites" (atleast in Firefox). Thus Redirect tracking still allows to set cookies for advertising networks that could be read out in iFrames or image / "tracking beacon" requests. As far as i understood: "3rd party" would exclude this.

Multidomain distribution to bypass connections restrictions, that kind of stuff? Or domains with different servers for different use cases?
