Understanding the output of: kopia repository status

The repository I use is rclone managed Onedrive.

kopia repository status gives:

What exactly is the meaning of this:
Content compression: true

Iā€™m just curious because I have enabled / disabled compression for specific snapshots and just wanted to make sure I am not telling kopia to compress specific snapshot targets and then have rclone compress the whole repository.

kopia policy show --global shows Compression disabled.
kopia policy show /sixer/Documents/ shows

  Compressor:                       pgzip   (defined for this target)                                                                                
  Compress files regardless of extensions.                                                                                                           
  Compress files of all sizes.

which is exactly the desired behaviour I am just trying to understand the output of kopia repository status above where it says Content compression: true

Anyone got a hint for me?
