Tagging this with VisualEditor, in hope that someone there has an idea why this happens. The parsoid log (P6721) have some errors, but I can't tell if they're related to this.

I can't triage this without being able to reproduce the issue. What were the exact steps that you took that caused this HTML to be inserted?
