2D surface blocking will try to create a blocking for each surface of the model. So it could be 3D overall - but the blocking will only be faces - no internal blocks.

2D Planar will put a single planar block at the middle X-Y plane of the geometry.

Any blocking can be tranformed as you desire. Blocking > Transform.
