Technically it is a bug. Yes ffmpeg has always muxed it this way. But
see the reply below.

AFAIK, there is no practical use for the value written into
BlockReference. All the WebM codecs (vp8, vp9, vorbis, opus) have the
reference frame information in their bitstream and do not care about
what is specified in the container. In fact, in case of VP9 there can
be multiple reference frames and i'm not sure if there's even a way to
specify that in the container. So far, the only use of this element
has been to determine whether or not the Block is a keyframe.
