A BURP is a Big Ugly Raised Plate and a LURP is a Little Ugly Raised Plate. This can refer to the dark grey rock pieces in Hemlock Stronghold or a raised baseplate for castles such as 6086 Dungeon Masters Castle.
The Forestmen were the first "outlaw" faction in LEGOLAND Castle. Their sets started in 1987 with Camouflaged Outpost and continued until Wolfpack sets came out in 1992. In 1996 LEGO decided to bring back the Forestmen under the "Dark Forest" theme. This theme had figures with new heads and torsos. The printing on the forestmen shields also differ slightly. Three new Dark Forest sets were released and some of the bandit minifigures were also in Fright Knight sets, mainly as prisoners.

You are correct. However I believe the terms are also interchangeable for raised baseplates as well. But in the case of this set they are definitely rocks
