It is fuzzy. But Roger is someone who likes things in black and white.
A clearer distinction is whether or not the program involves mutable state variables. That's definitely an indicator of "telling the computer what to do", in the sense of telling it what values to put in particular memory locations, and it's this that restricts the ability of compilers to rearrange the execution plan.
