These aren't really bits as only one value should be set
as 8 overrides 4 and 4 overrides 2.

I would also expect this to be a value of 2 in your above
example, rather than 8. It's described as groups not bytes.

The example is showing a what would normally be a space ' '
separator as a vertical bar '|' every 2nd grouping.
