I'll look into this, but I'm not sure if this is an ABC-level construct or something the compiler cooks up.  Try running your program with $PLAYERGLOBAL, it might be in there (it has to be somewhere, the AVM doesn't conjure up types on its own).

Per Jeff Dyer's comments, Null is a higher-level construct with no concrete representation at the AVM/assembler level.
