What is a frost free faucet seat?

I was told I had damaged frost free faucet seats.

It depends on the age of the frost-free faucet. The old kind had the shut off valve below the frost line, but the new kind allows the water to drain back through a tiny hole so the waterline stays empty. I would ask for clarification about the word seat.

A faucet seat is an internal component of the faucet. It's similair to a rubber bushing that helps seal the faucet when it is set in the off position

A frost free faucet seat is the valve outside of a house or home, that does not freeze over in below freezing temperatures. If you have damaged frost free faucet seats, your valve is broken and might be freezing over.

An anti-siphon frost free faucet having a neck portion that includes an anti-siphon back flow preventer interposed between the neck and the hose, a waiter drain means positioning at the lowest point in said faucet when a supply of water to said faucet is turned off.
