Icon Question

I am working in an After Effects project that was started by someone else and am still fairly new to the program. I can't seem to figure out what has been done to these two layers. They have little icons next to them, but I don't know what they stand for. I have included a screenshot of the icons. Any help would be appreciated.

The is using the floor solid as a track matte to provide a transparency. That is why the floor layer eyeball should be ticked off.
