Show ip route "L - Local"


While troubleshooting a routing issue at work (MPLS VPN environment) I ran accross a /32 route tagged as L - Local.  It was being advertised by the CE; but what I didn't understand is that the /32 was really part of a /30 between the PE and CE link.

[CE].1 ---------.2(VRF A)[PE]

The route table showed:
L via

This looks like a host route to me, but the ptp link is a frame interface, and I thought only ppp advertised local host interfaces?  What is a "Local" route and why would it be re-advertised back to me?

Is there any relation to the interface being associated to a VRF?
