Probably, but I'm not sure, it could be the "%n%": IIRC in C, in a
c-format string, if you want to add a % sign, you have to use %% (I
don't know C++).

Have you tried to see how those strings have been translated into other
languages not listed as having errors? If they look similar, probably
it's a false positive.
