Maybe it was the only RCD protected circuit.

Sparks may have fallen out with client.

He made sure it wasn't RCD protected and OCPD = 6 inch nail.

Nope.... you've got me!!! unless it means that" this is the only socket that may be used outside....but there wasn't room for it all on the socket . It may be the only socket on an RCD?

And if the circuit is rcd protected then any socket could be used for outdoors ??

It's easier and cheaper to label "for Outdoor use" on one or two sockets as opposed to labelling possibly hundreds "Not for outdoor use"

Perhaps the outdoor circuit that was (Or was not) protected by an RCD was on a different Phase (Line) to the indoor Line and to bring it indoors would possibly bring a cross Phase fault of 400V Line to Line ?.

May not be convenient if it was a computer, printer, or fridge, or something else with a long on time.
Then why would those items be plugged into a socket that says outside use only ?
youre clutching at straws here lol.
