There is a 1mm thick spacer that comes with all Shimano 10-speed cassettes and is used when they are installed on an 8/9/10-speed hub. The spacer goes onto the hub first before the cassette is mounted.
I expect the spacer was stuck to the back of your new DA cassette and you installed it automatically when you installed the cassette.
