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
