If you can explain how VNC and RDP redirect the output of an interactive app
on machine A to machine B without using redirection on a live connection,
I'd be interested to hear it.

Are you sure that's the only designated use?
Wouldn't be to also start a app/program or portion there of &&
redirect the network connection i/o to the associated program?

Yes, or figuring out how to edit/what commands to use to edit
/etc/passwd and friends.
