Assuming you had a supplemental list of internships attached to each advanced anesthesia program, "you matched" means you matched either a categorical anesthesiology program, or a combination supplemental internship/primary anesthesiology program. One other possibility I'm not sure of is that if you rank internships on your primary list after all anesthesiology programs, it could still say "you matched", if you didn't match a primary anesthesiology program, but did match an internship, if internships were included at the end of your primary list. There must be a mechanism to inform applicants of this eventuality though, because those people would want to scramble for an anesthesiology slot.
