Well, "dismiss" does mean "close" in the context of this

That is because "dismiss" is not the same as "cancel". To
cancel implies aborting an action which typically includes
throwing away unsaved data. To dismiss (or close) on the
other hand simply closes/dismisses the widget/dialog/window
the button is clicked in.

It's probably a fine and fuzzy line.
