Question about English (US)

Someone pls help me, I don't understand some subtleties of using the preposition "at", I've read a lot of articles where authors say that the preposition "at" should be used:

1. When we talk about an exact/specific place

2. When we want to show the idea of a place (at school, I'm studying right now; at library, I'm reading books; at supermarket, I'm buying some food etc.)

3. When we are near some place like (at the door, at the entrance)

But I don't get how to understand when a person shows the meaning of being near a place, the idea of that place or the exact location

For example: my friend says "I'm at the library/school" how can I understand what he means, is he studying or is he somewhere near or in the school or he means the specific location
