I wonder what triggered it?  Unless they just do it at random intervals.  Was your next test clean?

An observed one might indicate there was some concern about the validity of the last test sample or a problem with the results.
Typically diluted urine, out of temperature norms, or skewed results can trigger an observed test.

A doctor can request either one or the other or both at any time.
