Does this mean they arrived at an earlier time, or that they were home at an earlier point in time today (but maybe not now) or both?
I don't think it is very specific, so one could assume either. I personally would think the later.

There are a lot of silent letters in Norwegian, it seems. I'd argue that the 'h' in 'hjemme' is also silent...
