ADF4252 - TPC22 Phase Noise Plot

ADF4252 TPC22 labeled “Phase Noise (Referred to CP Output) vs. PFD Frequency, IF Side” on pp. 10.  Usually the phase noise starts out high, close-in to the carrier and then decreases as you look at higher frequency offsets.  This graph shows the opposite.  It starts at -168 dBc/Hz  at 10kHz and goes to -142dBc/Hz at 1MHz.  Am I looking at this data incorrectly?
