How does OWASP tool detects CSRF issue in a website with no form data

Hi,

I was doing pen-test using OWASP tool on a website and it seems like although an XCRF token was added to the .action ajax call, the tool is detecting that website we built has Cross Site Request Forgery (CSRF) issue. I wanted to understand on how OWASP tool detects these issues? All issues related to CSRF are tested with where the website has form data but my website doesn't have any form data and uses only ajax calls still the tool is detecting issues related to CSRF.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
