white are in transparency psd

Hello Photoshop guru

I recently have come across a question which I cannot find an answer to.

What does the white area in a transparent channel means?

NOTE: I've attached image for reference.
- on the shadow layer, there's only black ink, yet in the channels, it shows white area in C, M, and Y.

Could anyone shard some light on this, would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Looks like your channels are inverted, like a negative, so that blacks show as white and whites as black.

Sorry don't know the cause or fix for this.

i think, white color - 0% saturation of ink, black - 100%, grey - somewhere in the middle. This white one can see only when single channel is ON, right?

sorry for my english))
