Yes, that is the part I never really understood: the fact that a scanner can make multi passes. Is it supposed to reduce noise. That's what it's all about?

I assume it's supposed to reduce any random noise in the system. Just like stacking images. However, scanning film the noise is already baked into the image (like the grain), so doesn't help with that.
