Cisco Press' Routing TCP/IP, Vol 2 explicitly states that
LOCAL_AS == NO_EXPORT_SUBCONFED. It's description of LOCAL_AS differs,
however, from the one you quoted from a Cisco web page:

"LOCAL_AS (4294967043, or 0xFFFFFF03) -- RFC 1997 calls this attribute
NO_EXPORT_SUBCONFED. Routes received carrying this value cannot be
advertised to EBGP peers, including peers in other autonomous systems within
a confederation."

My money is on the Cisco web page you quoted being wrong.
