OK, I looked into this deeper, and found it to be a merge conflict bug.

Although I test the bootconfig kernel side, I didn't test the
bootconfig tools side (need to update my tests)

I applied

first, and then applied this patch, and made the (incorrect) updates.

I didn't test the tools build (which I need to update), and that's the
cause of the bug.

Thanks for the report.
