Enterprise environmental factors can be external and/or internal factors. The idea is that your project is embedded in an "environment" and that this "environment" has certain factors that guide and limit what you can do on your project.
The Personnel Administration in this particular situation is an internal EEF. It's clearly not an Organizational Process Asset because it doesn't address a project / project management process. It discusses how to hire/fire and manage personnel.
If you read through the definitions of OPA and EEF in the appendix and you apply these definitions to the various factors and assets, then you'll get a clearer picture of why an item is an OPA or an EEF.
But I agree that it can be confusing and that it's sometimes not easy.
