What’s the meaning of “CR” marked on the PCB?

Receive the PCB prototype from supplier. And see a CR mark on the board. What does it mean? Is it related to quality control?

C for capacitance. R for resistance. CR for capacitive reactance circuit.

Alternating current can pass through the capacitor. When the capacitor is connected to the AC circuit, the charge on the capacitor plate has a hindering effect on the directional moving charge, which is called the capacitive reactance.
