Most likely a typo. In context, they probably meant "active" and
'activated". I suspect muscle memory kicked in and when typing "active",
the finger naturally typed a 'd' at the end.

Happens to me all the time with certain words. Like intending to type
"director" but my fingers always add a "y" at the end because I type
"directory" more often than I type "director".
