    Sounds to me like it may have some OVH-specific purpose. Check their documentation or with their support? Jul 11, 2016 at 18:57

Based on this post at OVH community forums in French, it seems to be automatically added when domain is created in order to display the default webpage.

Rough translation of the French message:

These records are used to display the web page "Félicitation votre domaine vient d'être créé chez OVH" ["Congratulations your domain name has just been registered with OVH"] (txt - welcome) in French (TXT - fr)

In your case it will be in Portuguese pt as the original question on the French forums was for:

www IN TXT "3|welcome"
www IN TXT "l|fr"
