They support more compilers than just GCC, for example cl and nvcc.
See cmake4eclipse help for supported compilers.
Additionally, they take the path to the compiler executable from the
compile_commands.json to invoke the compiler to get its built-ins.
This allows to detect compilers installed in an unusual location or
with unusual names (arm-gnu-gcc for example).

Plus there is an extension point allow other compiler vendors to add
support for their specific compiler without having to change

Indirectly. Settings from the cmake-toolchain are reflected in the
compile_commands.json file where they get picked up, as outlined
