offline folders? please confirm

I've inherited an office during an aquisition and was going through a file migration from Windows File servers to CIFS shares. This particual USER share (for home drive mappings) shows an icon I am not familiar with. What I believe this to be is that they have Offline Folders enabled on their workstations but wanted to be sure as I cannot verify this with my searching.

File server is Windows 2003 R2 SP3. When browsing the root of the USERS share I see a bunch of folders called "Documents". When you open this folder it automatically redirects you to the users folder thats also located in the root. So what would appear to be "E:\Documents" is now "E:\Username" once you open the documents folder.

Can anyone confirm this is due to Offline Folders on the client?

Have you verified that there is no group policy for offline folders and/or folder redirection? Those might be redirected folders.
