Why AP broadcast another hidden SSID?

I configure on 11D only 1 wireless network. It work in 5G only mode. If i start WiFi analyzer, i see this BSSID and one more from my AP. Why? Is it possible to disable them?

I would guess this is the hidden SSID for Wireless Mesh. So the APs can find each other for Wireless Uplinks.

I would also guess it is not possible to disable it.

yes, this probably is for Mesh. AFAIK this can't be changed.
