Much contrary to what you think, it means: people who keep moving, with no roots in one place, avoid responsibilities and cares. that is what its author, Sententiae meant. Hope it helped, Take care and happy mylotting.

i forgot to add something: moss here means something that is interpreted as something to be avoided or coversly something to be desired, and a rolling stone as an unsettled or busy person. The author, however meant the moss as something to be desired, and tried to explain it as: a tree that has to be frequently replanted, bares no fruit. As for an example, you can use it as you want. There was a song in which the author compares God to a Holy Rolling Stone. You may have heard of Don Mclean's "American Pie" that has a lyric: moss grows fat on a rollling stone, but that's not what it used to be. Anyway, hope the examples helped you understand. Happy mylotting.
