confusing comment for partial_inplace

bfd-in2.h has this:

        /* When performing a partial link, some formats must modify the
          relocations rather than the data - this flag signals this.*/
  boolean partial_inplace;

What is "inplace" refering to?
When I read the phrase "partial_inplace" it says to me "in the
section".  However, when I read the comment it says "in the relocs".

Which is it???
