Thanks for asking question! Could you please elaborate on what you are looking for or share the doc you are following and highlight the percentile in the above chart to help you better on this.

Percentile is a measure of non-central position, like quartiles, deciles or quintiles.

All these measures inform us of the position of a value with respect to others. If a value is in quartile 3 (Q3), it would indicate that three quarters of the data is equal to or less than that value.

The data is the grade of the students in a class. If a student has a 9.5 and is in the 85th percentile, it means that 85% of the students have a 9.5 or less.

I found in a web site a good example of percentiles.

Imagine that the height of a group of people is the set of data to study. If a height of 1.75 m is at P80 (80th percentile), it means that 80% of the people in the group are 1.75 or less.
