That doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't exist. I once had to explain the abbreviation aka[^] to an Englishman, and he claimed that there was no such abbreviation in the English language...

As for you leaving France a long time ago, that could be a part of it also. I'm Danish, but I've been living in Sweden for 20 years. The Danish language has evolved a LOT during that time (much more than the Swedish), and often when I read Danish newspapers, I will see words that I don't understand. Some times they are easy to figure out, but mostly not.

There could also be local differences, or maybe it's a Canadian French expression?
