I would assume that they test the concrete after it has set. Although who knows if they test it or test it adequately. This may or may not be some smoking gun. It may simply be jargon for it being a pain in the ass to work with.
(this is just from my limited knowledge talking to people in the industry...but here goes...)
The cement has high pressure nitrogen in it...the cement hardens via chemical reaction with certain pressure (heat) as the flash point to start the reaction. The nitrogen is used to keep the cement fluid, and once under pressure, the nitrogen compresses and allows the cement to set. too much Nitrogen and the cement won't set. there was a great technical article about this on the oil drum web site a while back...
