A question about Indentured servants?

ok so i was reading about indertured servants. In one of my readings, it says that indentured servants at times use to become the owner of the land they provided labor to....but in another reading of mine talk about their freedom dues...like how they were paid by their masters at the end of their contracts.

now, i am confused, why are they talking about "freedom dues" when most of the indertured servants became the owner of the lands they use to provide labor to?...help plz!!!
