 Hi @billpg and welcome to trac!

 The settings do server different purposes but, you are correct, the
 explanation could be clearer.

 It's possible for WordPress to be installed at a different address than
 the home page, most commonly it's in a sub-directory:

 WordPress address: example.com/wp
 Site address: example.com

 In this example, the admin would be at example.com/wp/wp-admin/

 Do you have any thoughts on the explanatory text WordPress could add to
 make this clearer?
