It means that you can cut the working yarn now since you won't be using it from that position anymore.

Probably a hold over from a long time ago. Scissors used to be quite expensive, and worsted weight wool yarns are actually quite easy to break by hand. I sometimes break my yarns with my hands when I have no scissors handy. It's tough with acrylic, but doable.
