svn:ignore and import

In several spots the svn book says that the svn:ignore property
applies to import, as well as add.
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch07s02.html#svn-ch-7-sect-2.3.3

How can that be, since properties are associated with files under
subversion? The fact that you are importing means it is not under
subversion.

Even if you have created a new directory under one that is under
subversion, the svn:ignore properties will not recurse. Also,
wouldn't svn add be a more usual way to handle this scenario?

I got around this by setting my global ignore configuration parameter,
but I'm puzzled by the statements in the book.
