Why does my AMEX Platinum show up as a utilization of my total credit?

When I look at my credit report, my Amex Platinum shows up as being part of my credit utilization!  Given that I have no limit on my AMEX, how can they calculate what my total credit limit is and then how can it be used to calculate my % utilization?

 

Any ideas?  Thanks.

Out of curiosity, is it TU on Myfico? My zync does that too, only on TU on here

Starting Score: EQ 515 TU 490 EXfaco 510
Current Score: EQ 660 TU 665 EXplus 661
Goal Score: 700

This should only happen with the TU 98 scoring model, the TU score sold here. Is your Platinum card reporting as an "open" account with a "high balance" on EQ?
