The terminology is definitely a bit ambiguous! Here are some direct quotes from the manufacturers:

Canon: Sealed and gasketed against dust and moisture. Drop-in filter compartments on long telephotos have rubber linings
Nikon: Dust and Waterproof rubber sealing mount

Nikon: Engineered to Nikon professional D-SLR standards to effectively resist dust and moisture

for example Kata makes protective gear especially for places like that - and a cheaper version is a plastic bag + tape...

I do not believe that cameras or lenses are watertight - slightly water resistant perhaps
