Unless it's a cross reference setting, with the "Show Context" switch
applied. If it's in the cross reference setting, you can find out like this:

1. Press Alt-F9 and see the field code for the cross reference. The text
could look like this: { REF _Ref400735634 \w \p \h }.
2. If any REF fields show \p, this presents as "show context".

Hope this helps.
