It means that the name of the setter follows the Qt convention, ie. starts 
with "set". Designer should give the attribute a value of "0" in the .ui file 
if the 0x000000100 flag is clear in the property flags in the meta-object.

If you look at the qtcore_qt_metaobject_worker() function in qobject.sip you 
can see where it is checking the name of the setter and setting the flag
