Why did my market order in the pre-open session become a limit order?

As a rule, all unmatched market orders in the pre-open will be carried over to normal market with their original time stamp as limit orders at the equilibrium price. If the Opening-Price is not discovered, market orders will be carried over at previous day’s Closing-price.
