"No Substitutions"

Please help settle a debate 'round here:

Sometimes you'll see a menu with the disclaimer "No Substitutions". I take this to mean that you cannot ask to remove an ingredient from a dish and add another in its place (such as substituting turkey for ham in a sandwich). However, someone recently suggested to me that it also means "No Modifications" to a dish - so no asking to "hold the mustard" or "dressing on the side" or so forth. Ideas?

Nothing's riding on the debate, just curious. Thanks!
