I think the assumption with JSON-style updates and the post tool is that 
you are sending "generic" json documents, not Solr-formatted json 
commands.  So the post tool sends to the /update/json/docs handler, 
which can handle those easily.  I believe that telling it that the 
format is "solr" means that the JSON input is instructions to Solr, not 
just document content.  It very likely sends it to /update/json or 
/update when that's the case.

I don't know if you know this, but the bin/post command calls something 
in Solr that is named SimplePostTool.  It is, as that name suggests, a 
very simple tool.  Although you CAN use it in production, a large 
percentage of users find that they outgrow its capabilities and must 
move to writing their own indexing system.
