You can get on Deere's site and go the the 900 series to see an underside view of the entire thing and how it works. They have a little lever icon you move to open and close the MOD. Kinda neat to watch. Scroll down to the picture of the mower, and under it you'll see a long black box with a bunch of dots in it. Click on the second one from the left-
I think the one I saw was just the discharge blocker because I did not see the yellow level on the main control to open and close the chute.
This is a very important feature.
On my 2006 DC, it has the chute blocker and the mulching blades.
