The 6-letter word is:

DIGITS - a word which, as per the title, usually has two different meanings: (i) numbers, and (ii) fingers, thumbs or toes.

Here, it's the numbers angle that is most relevant...

Take a look at each of the six strings of numbers in turn...

Each of these comprises a seemingly random arrangement of the digits 0-9, once each, but with one or two of them missing. The missing digits are, in turn:

4; 9; 7; 9; 2 and 0; 1 and 9.

If we convert these numbers into letters via A1Z26, concatenating '2 and 0' as 20 and '1 and 9' as 19, these represent the letters DIGITS, which must surely be the hidden answer.
