It's been in many BIOS before and if there is a sad development in PCs it's the move to reduce documentation. My advice is to stop buying products that the maker does not answer questions about.

http://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=42743.0 is from almost a decade ago and shows that this is a rather old feature. It is not an easter egg but as time went on, the key to do this did change as well as the makers cutback on documentation.
