I agree with the rest of your logic about complexity, but they are
less like placeholders, and more like bugs in the parser. A common
idiom in HID report descriptors is to have an array of bytes or
bitstrings, and the hidparser code tends to show the first array
element properly, then it prints several duplicates of the first
element with 0x00000000 instead of the last usage ID.
