Clean before dry means that they can control bowel movements before they can control wee.

Is it a polite way of saying they poo in toilets, but wet knickers still?

yeah, clean means they pooh in potty or loo, dry means they wee in potty or loo.
Point being that some (most?) children are one before the other eg my dd was dry almost as soon as she consented to sit on potty (at 2.6yrs) but poohed in her pants for 2 weeks until she got that bit.
DS1 otoh still weed himself now and then for months but never poohed his pants. Bizarre!
