that example isnt relevant.  notice how the description includes the word 
"prefer" and isnt just "enable mp3 support".

USE=mp3 is how you get mp3 support.  if there are multiple options (like 
ffmpeg or lame or mpg123 or something else), then USE=lame shows up to select 
one particular implementation over another.  but it would still be:
USE="mp3 lame"
