This is not exactly a correct word. What is meant here is that the default setting when the flag is not set is to treat the Interest as a request for the exact name data. And the whole point is to emphasize that library setting switch to follow the semantics of the packet spec.

It is based on a simple fact that finding data by exact name is simpler (1-step process, if considering hash table implementation) than finding data that matches interest prefix (multiple matches).
