[PLUG] What is "discover -t" saying?

The discover(1) man page does not describe output format/fields.
The relevant output line is:
>  Prolific Technology, Inc. PL25A1 Host-Host Bridge unknown unknown

There are two fields whose content is "unknown".
What are they?

This is obviously related to another thread of mine ;}
I'm not grokking the answers being given and references I'm reading.

As MATE's network connections icon spins forever I'm wondering;
"Am I {and the kernel} missing the information labeled 'unknown'?"
Who? Me? Grasping at straws?

TIA
