Residual entropy is the difference between entropy not at equilibrium and the state that the molecule is closest to zero (temperature). It is just a way to measure entropy which is ultimately a way to measure work.

Residual entropy just means the randomness of the system based on the position of the elements/molecules inside of it, when there is no movement (temperature is K=0).

Think of residual entropy as something that is completely unmoving, something without thermal energy, rotational motion, or translational motion.
