It's the type of active device according to context,
(these are defined in libcryptsetup.h)
currently there is PLAIN (create command) and LUKS1 (luksOpen),
but maybe later some other formats appears.

Basically you can get this information already from
"dmsetup status <name>" and check DM-UUID prefix.
(In principle this prefix used to check which subsystem owns
the device.)

Probably should be mentioned released notes...
