It sounds like the lower part of the sleeve is supposed to be turned back in the finished sweater to make a cuff. In order to seam it so the seam won't show when you turn back the cuff, you seam the lower ~3" to the outside, then continue the seam up the sleeve on the inside of the sleeve.
You could seam the entire sleeve on the inside, but then you would have a seam showing when you turn back the cuff.
