The message is coming from pacemaker's function that scans an integer
from a string (usually user-provided). I'd check the CIB (especially
cluster properties) and /etc/sysconfig/pacemaker (or OS equivalent).

Octal 012 would be a newline/line feed character, so one possibility is
that whatever software was used to edit one of those files added an
encoding of it.

I don't think so, or it would have the action name in it. Also, that
won't take effect until a cluster is entirely upgraded to a version
that supports it.
