Without knowing any details about the particular rule I will just say that it could a bug in the content. The content is what tells openscap what it should check. OVAL results will greatly help in debugging the issue.

Add --oval-results to the command line you use to run oscap. It will create an XML file with OVAL results. These may contain details we need to debug the issue.
