That's because print-fontset-element does this:

  (beginning-of-line)
  (let ((from (following-char))

IOW, it assumes that there's a single character there, not a
human-readable description of a character, such as "C-@".

How about submitting a patch that uses 'kbd', say?

Because the formatting of the codepoints is done by describe-vector,
which doesn't pass the codepoints to print-fontset-element.  So it
needs to reverse-engineer the codepoints from the text that was
already inserted into the buffer.
