I've been searching for some time but I've found no clear explanation for how "optimal quality" setting works in conjunction with "fine/normal/basic" jpeg?

I'm trying to determine what jpeg settings will be adequate for my photography. I shoot mainly people picks and I doubt I'll ever print anything larger than 10x15. Mostly 8x10 for me.

I get the following explanation from a famous Nikon guy:

"Using the Optimal Quality option in BASIC JPG lets the file size grow to the same size as JPG NORMAL if the subject needs it, and lets the file size shrink back to JPG BASIC when it's not."

That's fine, but how does "optimal quality" work in the Normal position? Will it automatically adjust to "Fine" or "Basic", depending on the scene?
