'#' is within BW the representation of an initial value and occurs in Analytical Grid Apps (Web Dynpro Grid Apps) and it is added to all value help (you will find same entry in the value help for G/L Account, Cost Center or Profit Center). It is not an error or bug, it is not a value from master data table and cannot be influenced by the customer. Technically it is an additional entry to be able to filter for initial.
