I can't find the text you are referring to. An URL would be nice.

Anyway, I'll try to do my best without context:

I interpret this as "the only place where the Subject of the message is
used is in the Subject of the reply".

Perhaps this is about the Debian Bug Tracking System (BTS); some of the
bug report's mail headers have a special meaning to the BTS (the To:
address, for example, contains the bug ID). That would mean that the
Subject itself is not used, except to generate the reply's Subject
(which would be important to help the person sending the bug report
to correlate the reply (s)he receives).

Don't hesitate to ask back if things seem less clear now :-)
