I haven't seen an example where counters() can be used to do multilevel
section numbering, since the headings themselves aren't nested. This is
usually done with more than one counter().

target-counters() could be used to create a reference to the numbering
inside a multilevel list, which can use counters(). I'll keep trying to
think of a semi-realistic example for that.

Thanks!
