BGP bestpath selection - locally originated routes

can anyone clarify what this actually means, i get different definitions from various sources

so we have weight as top

if weght same then local pref

then if local pref same, then locally originated routes


so does this mean routes which have been originated locally using 'network' or redistribute' statement,  if that is the case -- does that not mean that that the weight  of these routes are  32,678 in the first instance?

in another book , i also read the definition for locally originated :,   'prefer the bgp route where you have an IGP route for it' (from routing tcp/ip vol2)
