Comment (by jamrial):

 Update to a newer ffmpeg build and try again with it. I'm fairly sure any
 version newer than 3.0.x will show the actual type of side data ffmpeg is
 reporting about in this specific case.

 In any case there's nothing wrong and it's nothing you need to
 fix/correct. The CLI simply prints any internal side data available, even
 if it doesn't recognize it. It's merely informative and not a warning or
 an error.
