I don't think it's a typo. There's a sticker on the tool itself that says that too.
I gave my new one a workout yesterday (at 60 psi) and it worked very well.

DA is an acronym for dual action, the pad's spindle mounted in a bearing , mounted in an off center bore which causes an elliptical orbit, and spins the disc via centrifugal force. hence dual action.

RPMs and orbit diameter determine the effectiveness.

The counter weight / lock nut is just that, it holds the inner from turning when you need to remove the pad. I too have locked it and used it as a standard grinder. It vibrated to much for my liking and I quit using it in that manner.

Also, they list this tool as a random orbital sander. Same name as an electric sander such as the popular Porter Cable 7346 and many others.
