Both, I imagine.
A character with Vehicle Expert creates a resource of "Car d6". With regards to the dice pool, it provides an extra d6 in any situation where a car would be beneficial. It also has the narrative weight of being a car, allowing the character to accomplish particular feats that can only be done with a car.
Same with a Combat Master creating a resource of a particular kind of weapon - the narrative defines what the resource can be used for. If the weapon resource he created was "Stereotypical Katana d8", then he couldn't shoot people with it. If the weapon resource he created was "large and imposing pistol d8", then he could shoot people with it, but it wouldn't be much use in a duel against a swordsman. And so on.
In this game, what you call something has significant importance when it comes to determining whether or not you can use it in an action. A pointy silver thing has greater significance in a fight against vampires than a pointy stainless steel thing.
