What would it mean for a parameter region for a dynamic system to be E-stable, but indeterminate?

E-stable: it's stable under learning... so this means, once in equilibrium, you stay there? Or does it mean you always get there under learning?

undeterminate: super sensitive to parameter changes, tipping points may occur easily, there are multiple equilibria, etc etc?

The two seem to rather contradict, however, this combination is put forward in Figure 3 of Bullard and Mitra's (2002) paper for their adaptive learning New Keynesian model for monetary policy rules.

The other combination, Determinate and E-unstable or stable, either way, seems easier to grasp.
