The Mapping Workbench is how mappings were defined before the JPA standard. This exports EclipseLink specific XML for the EclipseLink specific mapping API that was used before JPA. The doc is just documenting this old feature/model (I agree the docs are confusing and we are working on updating them).|
For a new application, I would recommend you use JPA, and do not use the Mapping Workbench. If you need to generate classes from tables, you can use Eclipse's JPA tooling support (Dali).
I suppose you could just use the MW to generate you java files, and then edit them by hand, and add the JPA annotations, but it would be better to use a proper JPA tool.
