Renesas RH850F1L Microcontroller has number of pins that can be configured as general purpose inputs or outputs.

What might the following statement mean?

A particular pin is configured as Digital Output, Logic Low, but it does not have continuity to ground?

From where are you getting that statement?  The context may help a lot with providing the answer.

If "continuity to ground" means very low impedance to ground, that will mean that it is limited in the amount of current it can sink.

This statement is coming from our test group.

I thought very low impedance means very large amount of current can sink.

"Very low impedance" would mean that it can sink a lot of current.  You asked about "does not have continuity to ground".  The "not" would indicate that it can't sink a lot of current.

I would ask the test group for clarification on what they mean.  Their intent is more important than what anyone else thinks.
