The pre-filter is suggested in order to strain out larger particulates so they don't clog up your filter, so it is mechanical in intent even though it will also contribute to biological (all of your filter media will end up with bacteria on it so it's all bio really).
You have the order correct, mechanical then chemical (if you're going to use any) then biological.
