I recently installed a mesh system in my house. While the house is relatively small, it did have some dead spots with my old system. My old system was a router with a repeater. The new system has a router with two mesh devices. Coverage is complete but the reason I upgraded was to avoid having different networks for different parts of the house. Now I can "roam" throughout the house with no dead spots and not having to change networks. Note - It worked good with just the main router and one mesh device, but I decided to make sure it worked everywhere. Now I'm down to just two networks, my home network and a guest network.

The other part of your question, how the hell does it do that. It does it without using ethernet or powerline adaptors. For more info check out this article

Does anyone have experience with the so called "mesh wifi" systems. My
daughter suggested that I need one after reading a review. All I can
find is a lot of hype devoid of the things I would like to know, mainly
how are the units interconnected? It occurs to me that they might use
Ethernet via the ac power line.

I would appreciate anything anyone might have to share on the subject.
