I'm not familiar with this report, but my guess is that it computes the
numbers via a ChargeBack.  I.e., you enter in a purchase via a Vendor
Bill with a chargeback to the Customer.  Then on the customer side you
can set the sale price to the customer, which can include a markup.
This report possibly tells you the markup based on the purchase and sale

I'm only guessing, but this is what I would have done.
