How to understand the review revisions line?

The company I work for requests that commit history from branches must always be linear.

Solid line means the previous commit was the immediate parent. A dashed line means there were other commits in between the commits marked for review.

It basically gives the reviewer a little hint that other changes were made to the repo but aren't in the review.
