This one I can answer because I asked myself the same question recently.
The answer is that Phenix does not impose any sigma cutoff, but rather
your data are such that the minimum value of Fobs/Sigma_Fobs is 1.34 .
You can verify this for yourself by going through your reflection file,
line by line, and calculating Fobs/Sigma_Fobs for each reflection. You
will find that all your reflections have a Fobs/Sigma_Fobs larger or
equal to 1.34 . So it has nothing to with phenix; phenix just reports a
property of your data.
An easier way than doing it "manually" is using CCP4 sftools for
calculating a new column "ratio", writing out the resulting MTZ file,
and looking at this with mtzdmp.
