Why is the field 'Salary Type' populated with ANNUAL if nothing was imported in the UDF?
"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

Reproducing the Issue
Import your UDF and do not input any values under the column 'COMPENSATION_SAL_RATE_TYPE'. In the form it will display as ANNUAL.
This is the expected behavior. If you do not add anything under the column COMPENSATION_SAL_RATE_TYPE, it will be populated with the default value as ANNUAL.
