circle with an x on your boarding pass (with tsa Pre)?

My relative flew to Asia the other day and his boarding pass had an x with a circle in black sharpie. he couldn't use tsa Pre even though his ticket had Tse Pre on it. I'm not sure who put the mark on his boarding pass and I have yet to speak to him directly about what actually happened (English isn't his first Lang so he may have also misunderstood what they said) but I was curious if anyone knows. I thought it might be a variant of ssss but I don't see any threads that confirm. He also has *A status as well.

Have you seen the BP? Is it possible the X he's describing is actuall a check mark? If Pre lane is closed, most airports will mark the BP so that they dont have to take shoes off/can use WTMD at regular lane. (It basically is the officer alerting the regular lane that the person has Pre) It would appear to a person that they were being denied use of Precheck lane even though it was really closed.

Only time I've seen an actual X despite having Pre was when person checked in without ID. As this was international travel, that's not possible.
