They are probably referring to run-in headings. Those are headings that
start at the beginning of a paragraph, are sometimes all caps, are
usually bolded, and end with a period, like this (except I can't bold):

My Run-in Heading. A run-in heading starts at the beginning of a

"All text should be formatted in a run-in style (do not use columns)."

What do they want?
