I just found the following in the V5R3 Memo to Users. I think it confirms what

Prior to this release, the system value QIGC (DBCS version installed 
indicator), was set on if a DBCS version of OS/400 was installed. In V5R3, any 
NLV can support DBCS, so this value will always be set to on. If you have 
applications that check this value, you should update them to use the job level 
DBCS indicator. You can find more information about this indicator in the 
Retrieve Job Information (QUSRJOBI) API.
