DNS - What does "Record is managed externally" mean?

One of my CNAME records has a littke “i” next to it and the message:

This record is managed externally. To request changes, please contact your provider.

What does this mean? Either Cloudflare manages the DNS for my domain or it doesn’t. How is it even possible for 1 record to be managed externally in DNS?

And why just that one? I’ve got a bunch of CNAME records, most of them point outside the main domain and none of the others have this message…
