It just reduces the signal same as when you turn the gain knob, only difference is that it's a fixed decrease. I imagine it's probably just throwing a resistor in front of the preamp or something to attenuate the signal.

Also where would the Presonus Audiobox USB sit in there?

This presonus is equivalent to the 2i2 but won't have clipping problems as the gain range is 0 to +35db.
