From src/moab/MFS.c: 1372--1402 (roughly)

      if ((GP->F.FSFactor + GP->F.FSUsage[0]) > 0.0)
        {
        FSPercent = (F->FSFactor + F->FSUsage[0]) / (GP->F.FSFactor + 
GP->F.FSUsage[0]) * 100.0;

        if ((((FSMode == mfstFloor)   && (FSPercent < FSTarget)) ||
             ((FSMode == mfstCeiling) && (FSPercent > FSTarget)) ||
             ((FSMode == mfstTarget)  && (fabs(FSPercent - FSTarget) > 5.0))) 
&&
              (FSTarget > 0.0))v
          {
          strcat(tmpName,"*");
          }
        }
      else
        {
        FSPercent = 0.0;
        }

A star will appear after the name in QOS if:
 	[Target]  Abs(current-target) > 5% and target > 0%
	[Ceiling] current > target
	[Floor] current < target
	[Capped] never.

If I read this right then, roughly speaking, a star indicates that any jobs 
with that QOS will have their priority increased.

HTH,

Paul.
