Explanation:

المطوع كلمة مشتقة من الطاعة .. وهي الخضوع والانقياد لأوامر الله ونواهيه ..
والمطوّع في عرف أهل نجد هو أقل من العالم .. وفوق مستوى العامة بحيث أنه يعرف قراءة القرآن .. كما أنه يعرف أن يكتب الكتاب ويقرأه .. وهو علاوة على هذا وذاك يعرف مبادئ الدين وأصوله والعبادات ومستلزماتها ويصلي بالناس إماماً
وهذا المثل يضرب في أن كلمة المطوع لا تقتصر على أئمة المساجد فقط بل إن كل عبد طائع لربه يسمى مطوعاً لأن لقب مطوع لقب كبير في نظر المواطنين والذي يتصف به أو يتحلى به له مقام مرموق فيما بينهم

it could have (as many Najdis seemed to believe judging from the portion in red above) been derived from طاعة meaning obedience, piety, observance of God's commandments, etc. This would be more consistent with the morphological pattern of the word (being a passive participle from طوّع).
