Referral traffic is is when someone clicks on a hyperlink (posted on different site like a guest post, classified site, coupons, forum, etc) that goes to your website. The originating site is called a “referrer” because it refers traffic from one place to the your site.

So, referral traffic doesn't need to be generated by referral links as in affiliate programs.
If I'm a member of a forum about economics, I quote an article and I insert a link to that article, that link will produce referral traffic?
