Answer

Traditionally, mounting a volume within the context of NFS means an NFS client is sending a mount operation to an NFS server.

However, "volume mount" may refer to an Ontap 9 command used to junction a volume.
Further details on this are available in the Ontap 9 documentation:
Mounting or unmounting existing volumes in the NAS namespace
