Why do some columns/rows have no numbers, but some have a 0 on them? Are the ones without the numbers meant to be hidden info? If they’re meant to have no ships, can you explain why the ship piece at (4,4) isn’t a circle like the one at (2,2)?

Given 0s are exactly 0. Missing values can assume any value (for a 10×10 puzzle, this is any value from 0 to 8).
