I believe it means they have facebook messenger app installed in their mobile phone.

Its means they are online on messenger and can take your call. But you are saying that these friends are not on Facebook friend list but have in your contact list it means they are using Facebook but not connected to you. You may be sync your contacts to Facebook messenger so all your contacts number which using Facebook and enable their number on Facebook they also shows you on messenger. you can send request or directly call from messenger . Why not try to tap on call button which have blue icon but not on Facebook friend list
