Are you looking within an output XMI file?

If so and you have a list of numbers there, I think it's because
ontologyConceptArr points to actual UmlsConcept types, rather than to just
a string with Concept Unique Identifiers (CUIs).  You have to follow the
link to the number, perhaps search for
in your XMI file.
