It just means they want to add you to their network of people they know - people often try to get as many people networked as higher number = better look. Connections (and followers i guess) can be treated like followers on any other social media platform really. If they message you and you feel uncomfortable, you can just block them - otherwise, it just adds to your number

Ah okay fair enough and let’s say you apply for their company and they seem to be the owner then is that a good indication and gesture.

It shows they are looking at your profile to gain a better understanding of who you are and whether you are a good fit for the company. Linkedin is there after all to help advertise yourself as a worker/applicant, so make your profile stand out and show you are a good and skilled person.
