I don't get the exact meaning of this paragraph.

I'll try to explain a little. If the administrator sets up the auditing
policy (which implies that the auditing is an option), then the plugins
of employees will also use the auditing key to encrypt a message besides
receiver's public key. This is a little different from what I said
earlier about users' plugins because this is a design decision which has
not been finalized: whether to make employees or employees plus partners
to use the auditing key. This might become an option too.
