Exact meaning?

If someone says they’ll do something one day that means that they may not be able to do it now but they think they will in the future, right.

    No. It simply means that the person intends to do something, or wishes to do something, in the future. But it does NOT necessarily imply also that they are unable to do that thing right now.

    For example, someone may say "I'll loose weight one day". This does NOT indicate that they are in some way unable to start the process today.

      No. There is no implication that the person is unable to do the thing right now, merely that it is a desire for the future.

    Someone may not be able to do something at present but will do in future , therefore there is use of Future Indefinite Tense.

      It's a well known saying and it means just that! Perhaps, where you are, it means something different.
