All cases that I've seen so far were suffixes of previous
example this is a typical case (in libX11):

[ 151d] ".4/src"
[ 1524] "xbutton"
dwarflint claims that 0x151d..0x1523 are unused. I'm thinking it's the
compiler squeezing the reference to ".4/src" into previous string, and
failing to garbage collect the fragment.
Guessing it is a result of debugedit during rpmbuild which just overwrites the
paths with their shorter (relocated) variants because debugedit has no real
DWARF reader/writer - before you write the new one.
