The following is found in the component (through content - component editor 
 - Product tree component):
[menu tree-selector="[control tree_selector Products]" 

This tells that it either wants the tree_selector control setting and if 
that one is not provided to use 'Products' by default. 

In the case of the demo it is actually set to Products which you can find by 
going to content - index.html - components - Products Tree component, where 
it says:
Tree name
value  Products 

Now if you went ahead with creating the 'index' menu, transforming it to a 
'tree menu' ("Set tree mode" in Menu Editor), it would be showing up as an 
option besides Products and catalog/top  ....
