It means that a character doesn't lean towards one role and falls flat in everything else.
Think of it like putting stats into a character. They didn't put all their points in being the dick character, but they didn't put all their points in being the character that you have to symphatize with, no matter the situation, and they didn't put all their points in being the girl character. A well-rounded character can be a dick, be sympathetic, and has more to themselves than just being "female", without it all conflicting with each other negatively.
The turtles can be well-rounded, depending on the writing: Michelangelo isn't just "dude let's party, bro", he's also the most trusting and friendly and there's that stuff people say about him being the one with the simplest mind but given the most complicated weapon that requires the most thought, adding depth, or Raph sometimes isn't just "Grr, I'm angry and mean", sometimes they have him worry about not being good enough and struggles with that, and then there's that thing people say about him and his weapons, that are meant for a defensive role that counter his aggressive nature.
Though, of course, characters don't have to be well-rounded. Sometimes a character needs to fit into one role, and it's a role they serve well. Sometimes you just need a villain, you get a villain, and it's a great one. You don't need to pull a Maleficent, and pointlessly make them "sympathetic", cause that doesn't make them well-rounded.
