I think the "\\'" after ".org" is to match the end of the filename.

>From emacs info section "Regexp Backslash",

     matches the empty string, but only at the end of the string or
     buffer (or its accessible portion) being matched against.

This line looks wrong.  What's the extra \\' for after .org?

I have the following:

(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.\\(org\\|org_archive\\)$" .

so that any files ending in .org or .org_archive trigger org-mode.
