What are ida fields?

Can someone confirm what are these _ida fields that we sometimes see in vardefs?

For example I created a relationship between leads and users (1-to-N) and now seeing the following:

$dictionary["User"]["fields"]["leads_users_1leads_ida"] = array (
  'name' => 'leads_users_1leads_ida',
  'type' => 'link',
  'relationship' => 'leads_users_1',
  'source' => 'non-db',
  'reportable' => false,
  'side' => 'right',

I think they are more or less the equivalent to what, in other places, is specified as “lhs” and “rhs”, left-hand side and right-hand side.

“ida” and “idb” are just the ids pointing to each side of a relationship, see for example here:
