The option to use Umbrella DNS servers natively without an Umbrella or Advanced Security Subscription (MR) just gives you the ability to use Umbrella DNS servers as recursive DNS service for your DHCP clients.
If you were to buy an Umbrella /Advanced Security Subscription (MR) subscription you could have the ability to create enforcement policies/reporting to block or report on certain domains etc.
The benefit over the traditional Meraki MX content filtering is that Umbrella can protect your network clients regardless of the network they are connecting to (Not just behind the MX - There's a roaming client ability to be deployed on user machines.). In addition, it provides much more detailed reporting and also sets up an easy roadmap to migrate to a full SASE architecture.
