I've been puzzled by this as well.  :P

Signed-off-by means you either wrote the patch or you handled it in some
way.  And it is intended as a legally binding document that you didn't
sneak in any copyrighted code from SCO UNIXWARE (etc).  So like maybe
the authors snuck some in or maybe a maintainer took the patch and
sneaked some unixware code in.

Obviously if you sign the code, that counts as an Ack and Review as well
because maintainers are going to only merge stuff if they've looked it
over a bit.  But the main thing is that it means you didn't didn't
violate any copyrights.
