can MuTect downsample a BAM file?

I noticed the latest version of MuTect provides these parameters: --downsampling_type, --downsample_to_fraction, and --downsample_to_coverage. So I wonder if MuTect can be used to downsample a BAM file. I would be thankful if you could provide more details of these parameters, e.g. example command line. Thanks in advance
