These GUI features were introduced in PR4587, and they are available in Bitcoin Core since v0.12. The data in the red box on your screenshot are read-only, and they provide users with the actual proxy capabilities. Each checkbox has an appropriate descriptive tooltip. Also you could check out the OptionsDialog::updateDefaultProxyNets() function in the source code.
