A portfolio with random performance - Question

I have a financial advisor who swears by Modern Portfolio Theory and the Efficient Frontier, as illustrated by the figure in the following link:

When I look at the FIRECalc "portfolio with random performance" selection under the "Your Portfolio" tab, I'm wondering if this option is meant to configure the calculator to simulate the effect of using an Efficient Frontier designed portfolio with an expected return and risk/standard deviation? Or is it designed to simulate a different investment strategy?

By the way, thank you for developing this and making it available to us.
