Discharged loan due to COVID

I just noticed I had my most recent student loans discharged due to covid. Has anyone else had this happen? Did they report as paid or were they completely removed?

Big congrats!  Were these part of the $1 billion in fed SLs that were recently cancelled due to fraud or closure on the part of the school, or was this something different?

Honestly I don't really understand it. It was from a community college so not due to fraud or school closure. I didn't end up doing to great in my classes the semester the loans were for and had to drop a couple of them, so I'm really not sure why exactly they got discharged, I figured I'd need to repay them back ASAP. I didn't do anything for it, I just noticed the message in my Navient account that they'd been discharged due to Covid. So I wasn't sure if they will be removed or marked as paid as far as my credit report.
