Red line on manual focus?


Pardon my ignorance, but in manual focus, on the FZ1000 there is a red line (see below), next to where infinity is. What IS this? I have used "infinity" (far right) only to come out with an out-of-focus image, and then tried the border between the black line  and the red line and got a crisp image. Not sure what to make of this.

Cannot find anything in the manual, but I don't know the correct name for this display element.

Does this have to do with the lens config on the FZ1000?
