[asterisk-users] Pickup calls coming from queues

I suspected it, but it didn't work at first. I fear I didn't understand 
what the context refers to in Pickup(extension[@context]).

I will make an example: phone-100 wants to pick up a ringing phone-200 
(call comes from my-sip-provider).

This is my sip.conf




This is my extensions.conf

exten => test,hint,Queue:MyQueue
exten => test,1,Pickup(myphonenumber at from-my-sip-provider)


exten => myphonenumber,1,Queue(MyQueue,r)
same => n,Hangup()

I expected to use from-my-sip-provider as context in Pickup, 
unfortunately it didn't work.
So I tried both context-100 and context-200 as context in Pickup and 
they *both* worked! What's the logic behind Pickup's context?
