It means that there are actually 16 colors. It might be a bit improved by dithering, but nevertheless... only 16 grades of gray, like in old-fashioned models (k2, k3 & kdx), just a bit remapped to increase the buffersize
See my newtrix demo to see how to mirror the top 4-bits into the bottom 4-bits on an 8-bit framebuffer. The GPL device driver code actually says that the bottom 4 bits MUST be equal to the top 4 bits, or the eink hardware can behave in an "unpredictable" manner (depending on specific hardware). My newtrix demo also does dithering to get 256 shades of gray into each of those 4-bit pixel copies in the second demo in that program. Check it out.
