What is the difference between “palm oil” and “palm fruit oil”?

I most often hear of palm oil and palm kernel oil.  Palm oil comes from the FRUIT of the oil palm tree.  Palm kernel oil comes from the SEED of the fruit of the oil palm tree.  I suspect that “palm fruit oil” is just a more descriptive, interchangeable word for “palm oil.”
