Are you observing any bugs or wrong behaviour caused by this, or is the
log entry the only symptom?

Does the Bluetooth audio device have control buttons? My Bluetooth
headset has play/pause/end-call, volume-up and volume-down buttons,
which are made available to user-space apps as equivalent to some of
the keys of a multimedia keyboard (XF86AudioPlay, XF86AudioRaiseVolume
and XF86AudioLowerVolume), so that they can control media players in the
obvious way. This results in it being treated as a keyboard in addition
to acting as an audio device, which is intentional: the buttons wouldn't
work otherwise.
