There is a property restriction on the class Expression:
 
frbrer:C1002 rdfs:subClassOf
 [
 rdf:type owl:Restriction;
 owl:onProperty frbrer:P2002;
 owl:onClass frbrer:C1001;
 owl:qualifiedCardinality "1"^^xsd:nonNegativeInteger
 ].


(English labels: C1002 = "Expression", P2002 = "is realization of", C1001 =
"Work")
 
I think this leads to the second of your interpretations: if an instance of
Expression, then 1 and only 1 instance of Work.
 
There is a similar property restriction on the class Item ("is exemplar of" 1
and only 1 Manifestation). The class Manifestation has a property restriction
("is embodiment of" at least 1 Expression.
 
Cheers
