see the name, for example, of F/03.Brass type and instrument number 21 "Saxofone A ArcFar" 

Far is for distant, but Arc is for ?? many samaples name have the prefix "Arc" in their names

I believe ARC is simply short for Arco.

Think of the “Arc” samples having a dynamic articulation that changes over the sample, as in a curve (or arc). So, instead of a single sustained sound, one that might evolve subtly. 8dio includes those type of samples throughout their sample libraries.

I think this is exactly it. If you notice with those samples there is a gradual build and decay. So I think you are 100% correct.
