Actually, it appears to depend on whose Authority record you're looking at.

Thanks for all the information and discussion.
I don't think I'm familiar enough with Authority file formats to completely
comprehend - but I certainly understand the issues around the question of

*Hi and thank you Ross, Jonathan, and Andy,
I do wish someone from LC would answer Jonathan's questions for all codes

is not quite unknowable -- it depends on the MARC codes that accompany it.
The brief answer is this: a
