BMW DCSNet says my 2002 K1200RS has "Sport Suspenion" and "Photo Control"

A few years back when I bought my 2002 K1200RS I pulled the bike up on DCSnet (I worked at Lone Star BMW) and was surprised to see it list in the options "Ohlins Sport Suspension". I asked about this, and nobody (Including myself) had ever heard of Ohlins suspension as a factory option until maybe the HP series bikes. Recently (now working at Alamo BMW) I happened to pull it up again after talking with someone about it and noticed TWO changes to the option Information. It now shows the suspension just as 0547 Sport Suspension and also lists something that was NOT listed before (oddly) it now lists 0714 "Photo Control".

Any chance anyone has these options and has determined what they are?

The "sport suspension option" is a rear only Showa shock with the stiffer yellow spring. Aka the Yellow Pogo.
