Oracle libname option has log output " X "

I've been connecting to and using data from an Oracle database using a libname statement.

 

LIBNAME DB_CON
           ORACLE PATH="&DB_CONNECTION"
           SCHEMA='MY_SCHEMA' 
           USER=MY_USER
           PASS="&dbpass";

 

 

I've recently started having problems updating rows. I found what I think is the fix here: http://support.sas.com/kb/37/470.html.

It suggests that I need to apply the libname option update_lock_type=row.

 

I've done this but am seeing something that I don't understand in the SAS log. Next to the new option there is an X. What does this X signify? I do not remember seeing an X in any SAS log before now except when using the X command line statement.

128                   ORACLE PATH="&DB_CONNECTION"

131                   PASS="&dbpass"
132        X	   update_lock_type=row;
NOTE: Libref DB_CON was successfully assigned as follows: 
      Engine:        ORACLE 
      Physical Name: (DESCRIPTION_LIST=     (LOAD_BALANCE=off)     (FAILOVER=on)     (DESCRIPTION=         (CONNECT_TIMEOUT=5)      
         (TRANSPORT_CONNECT_TIMEOUT=3)         (RETRY_COUNT=3)         (ADDRESS_LIST=             (LOAD_BALANCE=ON)             
      (ADDRESS=              (PROTOCOL=TCP)              (HOST= my_host)              (PORT=1521)              
      )          )
