What it means is in order to apply for residence card as non-EEA family member, your EEA member must be exercising treaty rights in UK, by working, being self-employed, self-sufficient or retired. Residence stamp is for family members of some newer EU states citizen like Bulgaria and Romania. After being in UK for 5 years as non-EEA family member, you can apply for permanent residence.
