Roaming Indicator

Wife and I took a roadtrip from DC to NJ last weekend and we noticed after 45 minutes or so that there was a blinking black triangle in her iDrive screen (her Moto E815 was coupled via Bluetooth).
Neither of us had seen that symbol before and, since the owner's packet is too friggin' big for the car and she doesn't carry it, we couldn't look it up.
I suspected it MIGHT be a roaming indicator and checked the actual phone handset, but it didn't indicate that we were roaming, and we had a great signal at the time.
When we got home, I looked in the manual and confirmed that the blinking black triangle is indeed a roaming cue.
My question: Why would the bluetooth system say we were roaming when the phone itself did not? Anyone else ever seen this?
