The reason for this being named layout is because the choice between Single
Page and Double Sided does affect the layout.

The left and right margins on the Single page layout become Inside and
Outside margins in the Double Sided layout. And you are also given more
options when this layout is selected.

Also, to understand what's going on when you pick any of the layouts but the
Single Page, please add more pages. You'll notice righ away the difference.

The 3-fold and 4-fold will help you design a document that is intended to be
folded (and made of at least 3 panels). The Double Sided is for any document
where you will need to have mirrored margins instead of identical margins on
each page.
