All urls that don't hit a file match app.php which then sends responses.

In fact this page already send the 404 response code (this page is generated by a generic exception listener). So this is a custom 404 error page.

EDIT: To complete what MichaelC says, this happens in only too case:
1) If your url is something like http://www.my-forum.com/phpBB/app.php/my/false/file
2) The url rewriting is enabled and the url is something like that http://www.my-forum.com/phpBB/my/false/file
But in both case it happens only if the url is not pointing to a valid file.
