I think so.

Rolls are supposed to correspond to the physical rolls of non digital
cameras. I usually name them after the numbers my lab stick on the
negatives so that I can find them more easily. All this does not make
any sense with digital cameras of course.

Topics are meant to group pictures by subjects. I personnaly have
topics such as Holidays, Weddings, Climbing, etc. I prepared the
database structure so that one picture can belong to any number of
topics, but the user interface does not allow yet to do that.

Another way of grouping pictures is with keywords. Keywords can sort
of be typed (or tagged). For instance you can declare a type "person"
and then classify pictures by person (this is the "Keyword sort"

I wish all that were more consistent. My goal would be to allow
dynamic grouping with keyword searchs. A kind of search engine with
query refinement.
