Great! This means you never had to worry about it due to reasonable defaults :-)

Anyways. The the 'wtcontr' column I really can't explain except by 
suspecting you are using a non-zero "weight_waiting_time" with the old 

As for the 'rrcontr' you need to run

   # qstat -r

as to figure out what resources caused it. Though it seems only the 'slots'
resource got an urgency value, but there might be others. You can check
by doing

    # qconf -sc
    #name               shortcut   type        relop requestable consumable default  urgency
    arch                a          RESTRING    ==    YES         NO         NONE     0
    calendar            c          RESTRING    ==    YES         NO         NONE     0

and see what you got configured in the 'urgency' column.

As for getting the point of all this you should read through man page
sge_priority(5). There you'll find anything that plays into Grid Engine 
pending jobs priority.
