Thank you, Wolfgang. Your table is most helpful. This can probably be found
in the documentation but not where I looked. This probably relates to the
recent discussion regarding manuals for novices.

My observation is that \completecontent and \completeindex are treated like
chapter starts in that 'Contents' and 'Index' are formatted as if they were
chapter titles.

Sectionblocks have two names, one which you use for the settings and another
one when you enable it in your text, e.g. frontmatter has the internal name
"frontpart" but in the document you use it with "frontmatter".

| Name      | Command (\startXXX ... \stopXXX) |
| frontpart | frontmatter                      |
| bodypart  | bodymatter                       |
| appendix  | appendices                       |
| backpart  | backmatter                       |
