About 3 PAD sharing

Hi everybody,

I'm currently studying a schematic.
At many locations it's written "CAD note : 3 PAD sharing".
What does it mean ?
Thanks a lot !

Maybe it's something what we do when we need to have an option to route a signal to two different places?

For example, see this picture below. In our design we have only one USB on our processor. But, we would like to have an option to route this USB to OTG connector OR route it from CPU to USB hub. So we specially placed resistors the way they share one pad and you can fit only one of the resistors.
