These are not typos: an xref in parens (a.k.a. pxref) is followed by a
period in Info if the source Texinfo specified a second argument for
that pxref.

That's because Emacs tries to remove part of the pxref when it
displays it.  It's a (mis)feature, not a bug.

Thanks for reporting this, nonetheless.
