Difference between I-frame and IDR-frame in x264enc encoder

I know the difference between I and IDR frame in H.264. But, in
x264enc's source code I saw two different constants for I and IDR
frame  X264_TYPE_I ,  X264_TYPE_IDR respectively.

Could someone explain me is there any IDR frame by default in x264enc
or all I-frames are actually  IDR frames in case of x264enc?
