PhD in distance learning

Hello everyone. I have a question for you. I have just finished my PhD and got a letter confirming my award today but was a bit surprised that it read "Doctor of Philosophy in DL in ML" (Distance learning/Modern Languages) and also states: PT (part-time). When I started the course I was full time and on campus and later moved away for my field work and writing up. I was under the impression that I wasn't "distance learning" officially.

I was wondering whether it is normal to have this written on their official qualification? Does it actually matter (I'm a bit worried it makes it look less serious...) and do I always have to specify that it is PT and DL? And in any case, doesn't the wording sound wrong? It makes it sound as if I am studying distance learning. Or am I reading too much into it and I should just be happy?! Thanks!
