The normal situation is that visas can be processed but an offshore visa cannot be granted when someone is onshore and that is the finalisation that has been referred to.
Your husband only needs to go to the closest destination outside of Australia and that from Sydney is New Zealand.
As desde has indicated, you should be able to have the CO clarify that and yes, there have been some people decide on making trips to Australia or have been here while offshore visas are being processed.
