Default Page 63 and excercise 2.8

On page 63 its given that g_(x) is approximately the mean of all gk(x) for any x. Why is it an estimate and not exactly the mean?

Since g_(x) is the average for any x, then its possible for it to have non binary values for a binary classification problem. But this seems to be a bit counter intuitive to me. Can you please clarify if my understanding of g_(x) is correct
