Or as it says in the text you quoted:

"This is in contrast to modified source from distribution for instance
that will usually add some patches"

Vanilla source == unmodified source

Non-vanilla source == modified source

Any modified source. If OpenBSD modifies the source, it's non-vanilla.
If Debian modifies the source, it's non-vanilla.

Personally I don't like the terms vanilla and non-vanilla but I think
their meanings are fairly clear.
