If you don't have visible abs with cuts, you're not lean enough, doesn't matter what your bf is.

Generally:
15% - Flat stomach but no abs
12% - Abs beginning to show
10% - 6 pack

Staying in this range is optimal for the long run. You can get lower bf% for the sake of it but then it’s too hard to know bf% and it’s also somewhat irrelevant.

When people say like "have abs" or sixpack does it mean in all lighting completely unflexed or flexed in decent ligthing?

You should be able to see your 4 upper abs in normal lighting at 15% and you should have a full six pack at 12% tbh. 10% is what most people would refer to as "shredded," when the abs have cuts and clearly protruding when flexed.
