According to the EBA XBRL Filing Rules (Section 3.7), unused @id attributes on facts should not be included in the report unless the reporter needs them. In the EBA Add-in, @id attributes are added to all facts, because this allows navigating to cells with validation errors or warnings. By default, the option Create @id attribute on facts is set to True. If you select False, unused @id attributes on facts will not be included in the XBRL report.
