[luatex] prev field in discretionary nodes

below you can find a textual representation of the discretionary node
resulting from the command \discretionary{a-}{b}{c}.  Lines beginning
with a + sign contain additional information to the preceding line.

nl: <node    199 <    208 >    236 : disc 0>
nl: +pre:
nl:   <node    212 <    181 >    218 : glyph 1>
nl:   +char: a
nl:   <node    181 <    218 >    nil : glyph 1>
nl:   +char: -
nl: +post:
nl:   <node    214 <    224 >    nil : glyph 1>
nl:   +char: b
nl: +replace:
nl:   <node    216 <    230 >    nil : glyph 1>
nl:   +char: c

In this example, one can see that nodes 181, 224, 230 (first nodes in
sub-lists) do have a prev field set.  But that points neither to the
discretionary node (208) nor to any preceding node in the node list (not
shown here).

What do the first prev fields in pre, post, replace sub-lists of
discretionary nodes point to?
