Aha! That would explain why it was there - thank you for your sharp eye.

BTW, are there any good materials on explaining _PSS, _PDC, _P.. and C-states
and how to read the ACPI DSDT/SSDT to figure out what it has?

One of my AMD boxes on baremetal finds the _PSS tables but when
I boot under Xen it tells me it can't find it - and I am not even sure what they
look like in the ACPI tables.
