Options Question ver 8


Hello.  I was wondering if anyone could explain the following behavior.
On my system, (Mac, Ver 8)  if I look at the options for ListPointPlot3D, I see the option for Method listed twice.
The code I was working with tried to find symbols with certain options. 
For example, looking for the option "Method" at the top level, found the option listed twice in the following 8 symbols.

{DensityHistogram, ListPointPlot3D, ProbabilityPlot,
ProbabilityScalePlot, QuantilePlot, SmoothDensityHistogram,
SmoothHistogram, SmoothHistogram3D}

For example: 

Options[ListPointPlot3D]

AlignmentPoint->Center
etc...
Lighting->Automatic
Method->Automatic
Method->Automatic
PlotLabel->None
etc...

Another...

Options[DensityHistogram]

AlignmentPoint->Center
etc...
Method->Automatic
Method->Automatic
PerformanceGoal:>$PerformanceGoal
etc...


Again, I am just curious.
I see that they are all Plotting functions.   Hmmm ??
