This is coming from the default behavior of docbook-xsl. You can toggle
the behavior of showing the ulink's globally using the
parameter (see: or you can write your own customization layer that overrides the 'ulink' match template (see fo/xref.xsl within your docbook-xsl distribution).

If you haven't already, I highly recommend reading
'DocBook XSL: The Complete Guide' by Bob Stayton. An HTML version of
this book is available for browsing/online reading at , but if you plan on doing a
lot of customizations onto DocBook output, I'd recommend buying a copy.
