I'm having trouble parsing a definition in Lurie's "Rotation Invariance in Algebraic $K$-Theory". The definition os for the notion of center of an associative algebra object, and occurs in Remark 2.1.3.

The setting is as follows. We have a symmetric monoidal $\infty$-category $\mathcal{C}$. We write $\mathrm{Alg}(\mathcal{C})$ for the $\infty$-category of associative algebra objects in $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathrm{LMod}(\mathcal{C})$ for the $\infty$-category of left modules in $\mathcal{C}$. Informally, we think of objects in $\mathrm{LMod}(\mathcal{C})$ as pairs $(A, M)$ where $A$ is an associative algebra object and $M$ is a left $A$-module.

Noting that $\mathrm{Alg}(\mathcal{C})$ and $\mathrm{LMod}(\mathcal{C})$ inherit symmetric monoidal structures, we make the following definitions. We define $\mathrm{Alg}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C}) =\mathrm{Alg}(\mathrm{Alg}(\mathcal{C}))$ and $\mathrm{LMod}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C}) = \mathrm{Alg}(\mathrm{LMod}(\mathcal{C}))$. It is known that $\mathrm{Alg}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})$ is equivalent to the category of $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebra objects. Informally, we think of objects in $\mathrm{LMod}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})$ as pairs $(A,M)$ where $A$ is an $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebra object and $M$ is an $A$-algebra. We call $\mathrm{LMod}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})$ the category of central actions in $\mathcal{C}$.

Finally, we arrive at the definition I am stuck on. Fix an associative algebra object $M \in \mathrm{Alg}(\mathcal{C})$. We say that a central action $(A,M) \in \mathrm{LMod}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})$ exhibits $A$ as a center of $M$ if, for every $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebra $B \in \mathrm{Alg}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})$, the canonical map $$ \mathrm{Map}_{\mathrm{Alg}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})}(B, A) \to \mathrm{LMod}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C}) \times_{\mathrm{Alg}(\mathcal{C})} \{M\} $$ is a homotopy equivalence.

It is not stated what exactly the canonical map is, but it is probably thought of as follows. The factor $\mathrm{Map}_{\mathrm{Alg}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})}(B, A) \to \mathrm{LMod}^{(2)}(\mathcal{C})$ sends a map $\phi : B \to A$ of $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebras to the central action $(B,M)$ where $B$ acts via $\phi$. The other factor is crystal clear.

Perhaps I'm not seeing clearly, but I'm not sure how to parse this definition. It seems to be saying the following. Fix an $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebra $B$. The the data of a central action $(R,M)$ of any $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebra $R$ on $M$ is the same as the data of a map $B \to A$ of $\mathbb{E}_2$-algebras.

This doesn't seem quite right to me. Naively translating this into ordinary algebra, it feels quite bizarre. Moreover, Lurie gives another definition for center in Higher Algebra, Definition 5.3.1.6. It is not clear to me that these two definitions are equivalent.

Am I just confused? Does this indeed produce a sensible notion of center of an associative algebra? A very vague informal argument will suffice.
