Default Noob question (To do with Chimeras)

Not sure wether anyone has asked but in the IG codex (page 39) it states that 'for simplicity we assume all shots to be taken from the hatch'. Does this mean they are fired as lasguns shots measured from the top hatch, or, does it mean that all shots fired as what they are and the lasgun firing business is just cool fluff?

Thx for any answers in advance. Sorry for the question I just want to improve my army so I can beat people. ;D (For once.)

It is true. Five models can shoot from the top hatch, measured from the top hatch, and they needn't strictly shoot Lasguns. In 3rd ed the Chimera's passenger shooting rules were a bit more complicated, but the latest codex prefers to use this abstraction for ease of use.
