Choice vs Southwest account number

In order to prevent my Southwest RR points from expiring, I would like to take advantage of Choice's Extras to earn 100 Southwest points before the Southwest partnership ends later this month.

However, when I enter my Southwest number in my Choice profile, the system automatically adds three digits: 00 in front (OK) and 5 at the end.

Is that a known thing?
Is it harmless?
Or will that prevent the 100 Southwest RR points from posting?

Technically your Southwest number most probably has 5 leadings 0’s ( or more if your account is very old ). I don’t think this will be a problem.

OK, what about the added 5 at the end?

Their Twitter people say it's a feature, not a bug.
