What do the L and M suffixes mean on Xeons Gold and Platinum CPUs?

A number of the Gold and Platinum Skylake Xeons have the L or M suffix. What do they mean? I see a list somewhere on the Intel website that said M was for mobile, but clearly a Xeon is not a mobile processor. I can't seem to find the list now, but it is largely irrelevant, as it clearly did not apply to Xeons.

"L" suffix for low power embedded 

"M" suffix for mobile 

For example see the comparison table.
