When the extract abstracts checkbox is selected then the new trait will only contain a declaration without a definition body. For example, an abstract method that doesn't contain a body in such case will be overridden in the original class, and the definition will be left there.
When this checkbox is not selected, the method will be moved to the new trait with its definition as in the example.
