Yes; it has no relation to imagemagick and occurs in 23.3 too. The tiff
file is a single line and happens to contain "-*-" at one point. Emacs
tries to parse this as a file local variables section and fails, so it
complains. It's just a harmless message that you can ignore, it does not
affect anything. I'm not sure that it's worth trying to do anything
about this.
