GRASS:~> r.what --help
       input   Name of existing raster map
       cache   Size of point cache
               default: 500
        null   Char string to represent no data cell
               default: *
  east_north   Coordinates for query

so the *'s you are seeing represent null values.
using null=NaN or something might be more useful to you if you want to
export the data to Matlab, etc..
