DNA Structure and Replication

ID #1698

In the statement "DNA pol I removes the DNA primer that was used to initiate DNA synthesis", do the words DNA primer mean that the primer was made of DNA or that it was just the primer that started DNA synthesis?

The way this statement is worded, it is stating that the primer is made of DNA, and it is DNA polymerase I's job to remove it.
