Welcome to the forum.
Could be a mark letting you know where to set the bit in the collet

Trend UK place an inverted K on the shanks of their router bits. It marks the minimum insertion into the collet.

CMT has been marking their router bits with this mark for years. As mentioned above, it's to show how far into the collet your bit should be seated. I just received a set of pattern bit, top bearing type, that are a lesser known import brand that also have this mark. And for what I paid for the set of bits it is not CMT!
