Difference between Managers and Services in Confluence API

Working with Confluence API in some add-ons I've noticed that some functions available from "managers" and some from "services".
For example:
CommentService (https://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/6.3.4/com/atlassian/confluence/content/service/CommentService.html) and CommentManager (https://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/6.3.4/com/atlassian/confluence/pages/CommentManager.html)
LabelManager (https://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/6.3.4/com/atlassian/confluence/labels/LabelManager.html) and LabelsService (https://docs.atlassian.com/confluence/6.3.4/com/atlassian/confluence/labels/service/LabelsService.html)
and so on.
What is the point to divide API functions into managers and services? What is the main difference between them?
