Differences between Options
With the command "Place Insert as Pingroup", a symbol is placed for each connector and insert contained in the selected connector / insert, which represents all the pins. In the example, as the device has only one symbol, a single symbol has been added with all pins. If there were more symbols, they would be added.
Differences between features
With the command "Place Complete Device", a symbol is placed with all the pins contained in the selected connector / insert.
In the example, the command places a symbol grouping all the pins.
