You use "base" if and only if there is a base item that sets the respective property and you want to merge the values. This happens often in products, but if you find yourself deriving from a Module or Group item, then the same logic also applies.
When setting module properties in a (non-derived) Group, you'll typically use "outer" instead, which refers to the value in the surrounding product. That should do the right thing even if the product does not set the module property directly.
