Default cufflinks results

I'm wondering what the results of cufflinks mean.

This is how they explaned:

In the transcripts.gtf, each row represents either a transcript or an exon within a transcript.

The isoforms.fpkm_tracking contains the estimated isoform-level expression values in generic FPKM.

The genes.fpkm_tracking contains the estimated gene-level expression values in the generic FPKM

I noticed two interesting things. (1) in the transcripts.gtf, there is a FPKM value which is from the isoforms.fpkm file and (2) All the entries from isoform.fpkm exist in transcripts.gtf. But exons may exist in several transcripts.

I don't know how the cufflinks exactly work but i guess, it assemble out all the possible transcripts in isoform tracking and exons in gene tracking, and list their composition relations in the transcripts.gtf file.

This is what I understand about cufflinks results, I warmly welcome any comments and discussions.
