Here is the copy of your manual. Check in section--> 1 Desktop Board Features<--The board does in fact support front panel USB ports with a connector on the board specifically for front panel.

Do I need to purchase anything else or does that simply mean that if the case caters for the front USB ports they are on the motherboard?

You can just plug the USB-case connector onto the board,
you should only check if the case has a default connector:

                                          USB Cable Connector
                                Pin                             Signal
                                 A1 ------------------------------ Vcc (red)
                                 A2 ------------------------------ Port0 data- (white)
                                 A3 ------------------------------ Port0 data+ (green)
                                 A4 ------------------------------ Gnd (black)
                                 A5 ------------------------------ None or Gnd (black)
                                 B1 ------------------------------ Vcc (red)
                                 B2 ------------------------------ Port1 data- (white)
                                 B3 ------------------------------ Port1 data+ (green)
                                 B4 ------------------------------ Gnd (black)
                                 B5 ------------------------------ None or Gnd (black)

When the case has front panel USB capabilities there are cables included in the case that attach to the specific connector on the motherboard. They are fairly standard but sometimes they require a propriatory connector.
There is also a jumper setting that routes the usb port to the front panel found on page 40 of the manual.This must be set properly in order for the front USB ports to run.
The most important thing to do here is to read the manual.
