Pen mode as in one point on your tablet has a fixed corresponding point on the monitor. So the center of your tablet is always the center of your monitor, the left upper corner of the tablet always matches the left upper corner of your screen, and so on.
Mouse mode would have no fixed points. Just like a mouse. So if you left your cursor in the middle of the screen, it stays there no matter what part of the tablet your pen comes into contact with next.
I'm the opposite. I like making large sweeping motions when I draw. Mine's 9x12, and I use pretty much all of the area of the tablet.
