I am pretty sure AUCTeX things that line is an error [indicator], or
more likely that it belongs to the error tracking.  It is just that at
the closing paren, it will forget this again.

At one point of time, AUCTeX was rather strict about what it considered
a paren signifying opening a file, and could not be strict about what
parens it considered closing the file because those parens were rather
on their own.

So I changed the parsing to make opening parens similarly lenient.  That
earned AUCTeX a lot of false opens cancelled by the unavoidable false

If anybody made the rules "more correct" since then, you'll get more
errors of that kind.
