What does Form 2555-T Line 15C mean? "Did your Visa Limit the length of your stay or employment in a foreign country?

I am living in Japan under 3 year Humanity visa. Is the question asking if there is a limit on the amount of renewals my visa has? Since that is a thing here. Or is is asking about how much time I have on my visa. So in my case, 3 years.
