If you get pulled aside they will most likely crack open your carry-on
bag(s) and take a round thin cloth pad, rub it around your luggage and
personal belongings, then drop it into a machine that analyzes the residue
it picked up.  Hence a "swab" of your bags.

Pardon my ignorance - what does "swab" mean ?
