That is not something that needs to be done for any specific action, but for being able to use the MIDI/OSC Learn feature with any of REAPER actions. So you can trigger actions via OSC in two ways: by using the corresponding message patterns in the .ReaperOSC configuration, or by using the Learn MIDI/OSC feature with the Actions list.

Well, that's the downside of using REAPER actions instead of the more sophisticated OSC "action descriptions". If you want bidirectional bindings (i.e. proper feedback from REAPER to your OSC control surface, so your toggle buttons always show the correct state) you should use action descriptions such as FX_BYPASS and TRACK_SOLO instead.
