Translate this simple METAR

Just browsing some MET data.

Can anyone help to decipher the /// part of the METAR below:
EETU 092150Z AUTO 22010KT 8000 BR OVC007/// M01/M03 Q1017 REFZUP RESG

I got the rest but my Google searches are not coming up with anything with the backslashes after the cloud description.

I know that a report from a fully automated AWS that does not include information from sensors for visibility, weather, or cloud will report ////, // or ////// respectively in lieu of these parameters. This one has 3x backslashes so just got curious.

From Annex 3:

Quote:
when the cloud type cannot be observed by the automatic observing system, the cloud type in each cloud group
should be replaced by ///
