Cannot find lighting and exterior equipment assigned in OS

I am using OS v2.4.
I only define two types of electric equipment definition using Watts Per Space Floor Area as shown below image.
However, when I look at the idf file exported from OS, I saw other definition is included using Design Level (I put one of the example below). I want to delete these definition in OS. But cannot find anywhere. Does anyone know where these are defined? Same situation for Lighting also.

Lights,
Lights 22,               !- Name
28F_PlantRm1,            !- Zone or ZoneList Name
All On,                  !- Schedule Name
LightingLevel,           !- Design Level Calculation Method
98.3999997801983,        !- Lighting Level {W}
,                        !- Watts per Zone Floor Area {W/m2}
,                        !- Watts per Person {W/person}
,                        !- Return Air Fraction
,                        !- Fraction Visible
;                        !- Fraction Replaceable

@katsuya.obara Can you list the "other definitions" you get in the idf or better post a link to the OS model?

@Avi I have added ElectricEquipment also. Is this what you expect me to do? I cannot post a like to OS model since this is the model for on going project.

This is automatically done by OpenStudio during forward translation when you have more than one space in the same thermal zone.

It combines the Spaces into a single thermal zone, and when doing this, it converts the various potential Lights (and LightsDefinition) objects into a given lighthing level (absolute, in W, allows to sum two or more LightsDefinition that could have different lighting units).
