BEL constant in MAINDEC-8E-D0AB-PB

I've been running and looking at the PDP-8/E INSTRUCTION TEST 1. And it
is supposed to write the BEL (07) character after each round of passed
tests. However the code loads and outputs the constant "0207", which is
07 with the eigth bit set. I think the 8/E serial interface outputs all
eight bits in this case?
I suppose a real ASR-33 would ignore the eight bit?
Why does the code not load 07?
