    Enter a phone conference code at a tap: Many of us have had to dial either hard-to-remember extensions or conference room codes at some point. If you find yourself making those calls frequently, you can simplify the process. Go to the Keypad section of the Phone app and enter the phone number you dial; then, at the end, tap and hold the pound key until it turns into a semicolon. Now enter the passcode or extension, and then add the whole shebang to a new or existing contact record. Next time you dial that contact or number, you’ll see a small button in the bottom left that says “Dial” with the code you entered; tap that to have it entered on the keypad automatically.

    How to get rid of this dial extension

    Check your Contacts app for an address book entry "(888) 888-8888" and remove it.

    That phone number is an actual phone number.

    It doesn't matter what the number is. I can call any number, contact or not and it always shows up. I used the 888-888-8888 number for an example to take the screenshot.
    I would like to know how to get rid of it all together.

    That dial button signifies that an extension exists for the phone number being dialed, most conveniently with its' corresponding entry in the contacts app. If it continually displays on the dial pad, I would perform a hard reset and restoring as new, which might clear it up. I would first check my address book entries in the contacts app, to see if there are extensions added to all contacts or not.
