Intelectual property licenses are contracts. There's no "difference",

(The stuff about signing the license is a little wierd, too.  It's not
really clear the point that is being made.  Perhaps it's trying to say
that since you haven't signed the license, you haven't accepted its
terms yet, but will have to if you are going to perform an act that
requires a permission giving in the license.)

Many contracts don't require signing. Google "manifestation of assent".
One accepts the GPL contract by exercising exclusive right(s) granted
under it.
