Are you sure that's octal- octal starts with a 0 and hex 0x or 0X

Yes. This is in octal format. A char can be assigned a value either in octal format or unicode format.

Check out the JLS, it explains �3.10.6 Escape Sequences for Character and String Literals:
OctalEscape:
\ OctalDigit
\ OctalDigit OctalDigit
\ ZeroToThree OctalDigit OctalDigit
OctalDigit: one of
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
ZeroToThree: one of
0 1 2 3
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
