What's the exact definition of Outlier MEV txs currently in review on Flashbot's MEV-explore dashboard?

Does it mean that the transactions there are currently under review and the profit (MEV Tx Sender Income) that's signaled might be wrong? Or is my interpretation wrong?

As it is mentioned in data & metrics tab of the Explore, txs with huge amount of gas usage are separated and put in manual review:

Extracted MEV Gas Usage % represents the overall gas usage of Extracted MEV txs as a % of the total gas usage on the Ethereum network since Jan 1 2020. We’ve added a filter on there to exclude the 5% most outlier value until they are reviewed manually.
