Grub menu entry without "root=" in SLES11SP2 machine

I am trying to write a script that parse /boot/grub/menu.lst. On SLES11 SP2
installed machine
I observed that no "root=<device>" entry specified in menu entry of
grub.However, the system
boots up properly on reboots.

----------------------------------------- >8

title SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP2
    root (hd0,1)
    kernel /boot/vmlinuz-<version>-default resume=/dev/sda1 splash=silent
    initrd /boot/initrd-<version>-default

----------------------------------------- >8

Is this expected behavior for grub ? or it might be something specific for
SLES11SP2 (falling on resume device)?
Can anyone please help understand this?
