How to bundle CRRT or 5-digit pieces in FSS soratations in MailStream Plus

Product affected:  MailStream Plus, all versions, all platforms
Starting Jan 22, 2017, even if the pieces are prepared as part of a FSS scheme bundle, the USPS now gives the rates based on what they would have got without FSS. 
So MailStream plus does a presort to determine the rates. 
Then does a second presort for the FSS scheme bundles.  The pieces to a CRRT or 5-digit may tend to remain together, but it's possible that they'll be somewhat scattered amongst bundles to the same FSS destination.
 
The bundle should be marked as FSS and the OEL will have FSSx. The Letter ‘x’ at the end of the OEL for FSS OEL is used to denote the Rate that the mail piece pays.
Please refer to the DMM for all of the OEL values listed:
 
DMM 708. 7.1.1 Exhibit 7.1.1 OEL Formats:

For example:
3-Digit (Nonautomation FSS flats)  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *SCH 5-DIGIT 06033 FSSG
 
The pieces that received the 3D rate received the G.  Above shows the G. So yes, this is for 3-digit Nonauto.
 
But for 5-digit Nonauto it has an E –
5-Digit  (Nonautomation FSS flats)  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *SCH 5-DIGIT 06033 FSSE
 
The pieces that received the 5D rate received the E.
