Jacoby 2NT rebids by Opener

When I learned rebids after a Jacoby 1M-2NT auction, bids at the 3 level were shortness and at the 4-level showed a good 5-card side suit. Some small variations are played based on partnership agreements.

Watching the Vanderbilt, a Jacoby auction occurred. The rebid by opener was 3C. The opener had a minimum 5-3-3-2 hand. The commentator said the rebid showed a minimum opener with or without shortness. He then matter-of-factly stated this was was current usage by better players. Is this a fact? For those who do play this way, what do other rebids show? I presume all other rebids show a non-minimum hand but what do new suits, 3 of the major and 3NT mean?
