It's a new one on me. I just tried compiling this code on my F35 at V3R2
and I got

        QRG5184 Severity:  30
        Message . . . . :   Factor 2 not valid for result-field entry
        of *IN, *INxx, or *IN,xx. Specification ignored.

I also tried an equivalent line in RPG/IV and got:

        RNF5184 30     Factor 2 is not 0 or 1 for Result-Field entry
        of *IN, *INxx or *IN(xx); specification is ignored. 

Is your friend possibly thinking of the CL command CHGJOB
