REAL Answer? Really?

It has no markings because there are no stops to the aperture ring. It just turns and turns -- either direction. It does click.

This is an internal design decision and I suspect the diaphragm is deeply buried in the lens body and there is no physical connection. Someone who understands switch logic can probably explain this better than me.

All Fuji lenses have aperture by wire, there is no need to have a mechanical connection to the diaphragm.
