Without seeing the pattern, it’s hard to say for sure, but I would guess this means, stop knitting at the end of a wrong-side row, then bind off on the right side.

Then again, it could mean the exact opposite, if the pattern writer equates “finishing” with “binding off.”

In practice, the difference is one row of knitting, so as long as you do any matching pieces the same way, it’s not going to make a huge difference in the final look. Good luck!
