How to identify official close price for European Options and Futures?

We currently refer to OFF_CLOSE field to identify the official closing price once the market close.

However, for Options and Futures, we have noticed that the OFF_CLOSE field is populated even when the markets are open and trading. Once the markets close, the OFF_CLOSE remains same as populated and the last traded price is also different from the OFF_CLOSE price.

Example: Euro stoxx - RIC Code - STXEZ1

Could you please help us understand this pattern of OFF_CLOSE field for this security.

I also noticed another field SETTLE with the same price as OFF_CLOSE.

What does the SETTLE field indicate?
