What does bound to the land mean in the following definition of serf?

serf:

a member of a servile feudal class bound to the land and subject to the will of its owner
+0
People who are "bound to the land" do not have the freedom to move from that land. They are like slaves. For example, if the owner sells the land and moves away, the serfs stay with the land; they don't move somewhere else with the owner of the land. In a society where this system is practiced, the serfs are considered a feature of the land, just like a kitchen is considered a feature of a house.
