why EVEN TCP SOURCE PORT for remote access ?

it seems like the appliance is opening remote connections with always a even source port as shown within file : KLM-Even-Src-Port.pdf

Our network team indicated that it may raise an issue on F5 ( BIPIP equipment ) because it uses the same processor.

In case the source port is a random value ( even and odd ) then probably the transaction will be load balanced properly.

Is there any type of configuration on datapower that might explain his behavior (even source port ) ?
