It is not a UEB symbol.  It is based on the blank entries in a table discussed in 11.16...with the onset of UEB we are to follow print more closely but just leaving a blank space where there is a blank space in print could lead to the student missing the fact that something is to be filled in.  It is, essentially, a series of guide dots to lead the reader across the blank space (while also making it clear that there is blank space).  A transcriber's note is required (either on the TN page or at the site) letting the reader know that the 3 dots 5s indicate a blank space in print.
