Yes, that's the SWR measured with the ATU in bypass. That's the first
setting we try in a "full search tune".
From KAT500 Utility Help for the Operate page:
The VSWR measured when the ATU was last in "bypass", an estimate of the
antenna's "untuned" VSWR without any ATU inductors or capacitors.

Subject: [Elecraft] KAT500 "Bypass SWR"?
My KAT500 utility program shows the tuned VSWR, generally a low number, and
it also shows "Bypass SWR". Is that a reading of the feed line SWR without
the tuner in the circuit?
