The only type of implicit reference I'm aware of in Java is when you create an inner class:

public class Outer {
    public class Inner {
    }
}

The Inner class has a reference to the Outer class, which I guess you could call "implicit" because you don't create this as a developer.

Is this what you mean?  It might be good to get a bit more context on where you are hearing about this.
