It's describing instructions that implement a stricter form of madvise(..., MADV_DONTNEED) and madvise(..., MADV_WILLNEED) I believe. As described, these are verbs, not adjectives.

The main difference, if I understood correctly, is that they're not just advice. If I PageOffline a given page, it strictly goes away until I explicitly PageOnline that same page.
