There is officially not one, but:
1) highway=cycleway is by definition used away from roads
2) cycleway=track is by definition used on ways that are also roads (or
possibly something else) - it is redundant if highway=cycleway
3) therefore, it is highly likely that people are/will use them to mean two
different things.

Given this, it would be fair to say that the "meaning" of cycleway=track is
a two-way copenhagen-style bike lane.
