What does the linux "file" command consider "suspicious"?

I was playing with the file command (the command-line utility used to identify file types) and I noticed one of the types it could match was "Suspicious"

What does that actually mean, what kind of files match it? Is there some program called "suspicious" that produces data file can identify? Does it match executable data that's in a file with a non-executable extension?


The magic numbers definitions used by the file command are stored in these files.

The only occurrence of the description Suspicious points to a certain byte in Flash files. It's actually the only occurrence of the string in the whole project.
