I guess it means that "non-nil" is backwards, as this part of
ns-read-file-name shows:

  panel = NILP (isLoad) ?
    (id)[EmacsSavePanel savePanel] : (id)[EmacsOpenPanel openPanel];

This seems to say that if isLoad is non-nil, we pop up a File Open
dialog, while when it's nil, we pop up a File Save dialog.
