Unusual computer account icon

Today I discovered a weird/unfamiliar looking computer account icon my AD.

Normally I would say that this is a disabled computer account, however experience told me that it should have a read circle with a white cross in it.

After checking the attribute editor I came to the conclusion that the account is indeed disabled.

The computer has been in storage for quite some time, so I figured that the computer hasn’t authenticated for too long causing the machine password to expire and thus disabling the account. If you have any other reason why it might disable itself please comment below!
