Probably it's missing a comma between "callable" and "builtin" and maybe the spelling is "built-in" instead of "builtin".

"A callable, built-in type" type that doesn not need overloaded operators for its entities to be callable (I'm using "entity" instead of "object" here to avoid inconsistencies with standard terminology).

I thought this term would define itself from the context, but I might have been wrong.
