No, it means that you can create a representation of a list by using the 
<text:numbered-paragraph> element.

Note that creating a representation of a list does not include the 
structural relationships inherent in a list.

A representation of a list, i.e., numbered paragraphs, is quite 
different from a list structure, even though in some cases it is 
possible to map from one representation to another. I haven't attempted 
to map out all the permutations so I can't say such a mapping exists for 
all cases.

I think something along the lines of:

"The |<text:numbered-paragraph>| element allows the numbering of an 
individual paragraph, as if it was part of a list at a specified level."

captures the sense of what was meant.

Hope you are having a great day!
