The glosses fit poorly with the headword. They would be more appropriate if they referred to the headword accompanied by a negative, as at Plato, Phaedo 100d7 (web address 1): "I make no positive statement about this (presence of or participation in the good)." Cf. Proclus' Commentary on Plato's Parmenides 882.1: "I do not affirm positively, he says, whether one should call it presence or participation (in the forms)."
