This set off alarms for me, too. The reason why it helps to track the
sun is not because of any directionality of the panel. It is because
you want to maximize the amount of watts per square meter which the
panel receives. The closer you can make the line of sight to the sun
match up with the vector perpendicular to the solar panel surface, the
more light you receive. Think about it from the sun's perspective:
when the panel is way off, the sun would only "see" a thin line, but
when the panel is broadside to the sun, the panel appears as big as it
can get.
