I'm pretty sure the rest are generated (up to the cut-off year of 2500) from the transition rule at the very end of the file: M3.5.0,M10.5.0/3

    POSIX-TZ-environment-variable-style string for use in handling
    instants after the last transition time stored in the file or
    for all instants if the file has no transitions.
