Keying Sets are a collection of animated properties that are used to animate and keyframe multiple properties at the same time. For example, pressing K in the 3D Viewport will bring up the available Keying Sets. Blender will then add keyframes for whichever Keying Set is chosen. There are some built-in Keying Sets and also custom Keying Sets called «Absolute Keying Sets».

Whole Character Keying Set
The built-in Whole Character Keying Set is made to keyframe all properties that are likely to get animated in a character rig. It was also implicitly used by the Old Pose Library system.
In order to determine which bones to add keys for, and which bones to skip, the Keying Set uses the bone names. The following bone name prefixes will be skipped:
«COR», «DEF», «GEO», «MCH», «ORG», «VIS»
