It could mean both.

I have one ancestor who has no death date on a headstone with his first wife, but he was ultimately buried in another cemetery with his second wife.

But I also have an ancestor who was buried with her mother. She died when the ground was still covered in snow and couldn't be buried until the spring thaw. I suspect by the time she was finally buried, no one remembered when she actually died, so the death date wasn't added.
