It's the difference between "commands" and functions. Commands are
functions that contain an (interactive) form and can be executed with
M-x <command> RET.  Functions need to be evaluated with M-: (<function>
<args>...) RET.

See the "command" entry in

   (info "(elisp) What is a function")

and references therein. I should say that the above is not quite
accurate but it captures 99% of what you need to know. Read the
references for the whole story.

M-: (org-element-interpret-data) RET

would evaluate the function, but any results would go to the echo area,
not your buffer. Adding a prefix argument would do what you want:

C-u M-: (org-element-interpret-data) RET
