I read the following sentence in the article posted below: "Think about the words that a user might search for to find a piece of your content. Users who know a lot about the topic might use different keywords in their search queries than someone who is new to the topic." Does this refer to the meta keyword tag or to keywords that should be placed within the description or content of a page? https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/7451184?hl=en

Keywords in a search query might in this context simply mean words in a search query. 
Keep in mind that for a search query you can have in search results pages that do not necessarily contain all words that are in the search query. 
But as Barry wrote, the words in the content are important for Google search results,not the words in the meta keywords tag.
