It seems that in your case the localentry part is added after the symbol
name. That doesn't match what is done in upstream binutils:

https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=blob;f=binutils/readelf.c;hb=refs/heads/master#l11485

Which version of binutils are you using? It looks like your version has
been modified to workaround this exact issue.
