Yes I mean sandbox elements. What does he mean by built upon.

You own a castle.
Someone attacks your castle to expand their realm (to get more resources, reputation, whatever)
Now you have a reason to get your castle back.
That is called emergent gameplay/content and is player made content. And that is just one scenario.
With other words pvp generates emergent gameplay, and if you deliver reasons to fight in your game you will increase the amount of emergent content. Like castles to conquer(with advantages), or resources to protect, or access to the Depth.
Everything you can conquer, hold and be able to defend and will give you advantages will create player made content.
And now look at the open world pvp in World of Warcraft. Do you have any reason to attack another player albeit from griefing him or just to fight? No not really. And even in battlegrounds the only reason is either to get to max level or for some leaderboards. Leaderboards are good and nice.. but do i really care about it? No. And usually only the players at the top of any leaderboard really care about a leaderboard.
But if you get some advantage from a fight you have another reason to fight and not just for the sake of competition.

Sorry - castle seiges is not player made content - it is a game mechanic and inherent in the game. All you have described in mechanics in a PvP driven game - that in NOT player made content. Player made content is like in Neverwinter - please understand the difference....

Emergent gameplay is player made content. We don't talk about pve content. Some quests made from other players.
If situations or reasons arise in a game to give you incentive to do something it is defacto content. And because it was caused by other players it is player made content.
PS/Edit: To describe it more into your thought structure a little example.
Clan A conquer city/castle from Clan B.
Clan B is a trader/crafter Clan.
Clan B gives out a Quest to conquer the castle/city back from Clan A
Clan C a mercenary clan takes that quest and conquer the castle back for clan B and gets a bounty.
- conquerable castles
- ingame bulletin board to announce Quests
- some way to give bounties for certain tasks
