What's the difference between M.2, M.2 (M), and M.2 (M + B)?

Can you help me, is this true or am I reading it wrong. It says here that the mobo support up to 32 Gb/s of each M.2.

Apparently both m.2 slots on that board are keyed M and thus are meant for PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe SSD's. You can also install key M+B SATA SSD's into either slot.

The official spec says that key M can indicate SATA, but all of the SSD's that I know about are keyed M for NVMe and M+B for SATA.
