Right. Clear Formatting is its own Big Hammer that removes ALL formatting rather than applying the current style.
Those other things just clear manual formatting - which can be useful too. Clear Formatting really does the whole job.

You can also use one the Plaintext utilities or paste the text into Notepad, copy it, and use Paste Unformatted to get it as clean text. The latter doesn't always work as well as Clear Formatting, but does it most of the tmie.

P.S. A lot of this stuff is logical and consistent...but only if you have memorized and swallowed the Word object model with all its glorious peculiarities and contradictions. Even then, it is easy to get caught by the difference between a list style and a multilevel list, to take just one example. Or the difference between what is defined for a Range and what is defined for the object whose range it is.
