The man page says,

              A colon-separated list of shell patterns (see Pattern  Matching)
              defining  the list of filenames to be ignored by command search.
              Files whose full pathnames match one of these patterns  are  not
              considered  executable  files for the purposes of completion and
              command execution.

I believe this agrees more with Dennis's interpretation.
