In response to Antedeluvian, the manufacturer's datasheet specifies a nominal resistance of 1.5 milliohms. Thus, the +/- 5% tolerance would be meaningful, and applied to that nominal value.

Bill Obviously there will be some resistance, but I always find it amusing when I see the zero ohm specified as +/- 5%.
