Since it was his friend that said it and not gfpokerfan, I think we can forgive him the slip up. However, even his friend could have been refering to pocket nines. Doubtful.
Now, as for your definition of Trips. As far as I've been able to determine, Trips can be any 3 cards of equal rank whether the pair is in the hole or on the board, while a set specificaly implies a pocket pair.
