What do * in the telephone field in reply SMS mean?

Below is a report received re the SMS messages:

1. What do the ** and * mean in the Contact Tel field?

2. Why does the report show the telephone number it does rather than the telephone number that the text was sent to?

Note a "-" has replaced letters in people's names and "9" the telephone number everything else is exactly as the R4 generated report

Hi Chris,

Thank for getting in touch again. I've spoken to a few people here in the office and to be honest we're not entirely sure.

The responses are generated by a third party so we'll get in touch with them and see if we can find out for you.

I'll be back in touch as soon as I have any more info.

All the best

Simon

Hi Christopher,

Apologies for the delay, I have heard back from our supplier and I think we need to gather some more info from you. I've asked one of the support team to give you a call to discuss this further.

Many thanks

Simon
