That is correct. It is the string that is on the green category bar for signed 
messages. It indicates which Mail address was used for verification so it would 

GpgOL: Level 3 trust in 'john at'

I'll add a translator comment about that string. Just having the placeholders 
is indeed confusing:

      /* TRANSLATORS: The first placeholder is for tranlsation of "Level".
         The second one is for the level number. The third is for the
         translation of "trust in" and the last one is for the mail
         address used for verification. The result is used as the
         text on the green bar for signed mails. e.g.:
         "GpgOL: Level 3 trust in 'john.doe at'"

It looks like:

I'll pull your change. Thanks.
