Folding of Constants

A transformation takes place for this expression:

WHERE column1 = 1 + 2 

which becomes:

WHERE column1 = 3 

Before you say, but I never would write 1 + 2 in the first place, remember what was said earlier about constant propagation. It is quite easy for the optimizer to put such expressions together. This process simplifies the result.
