Usually, that term refers to modules that do not have any fixed memory addresses in their binary code. E.g., when such a module references a funtion in another module, the linker that creates the resulting exectable will bind all such modules together and then adjust these relocatable entries to the actual one to reflect the memory locations that are formed after the image is loaded in memory.
