That's not garbage, that's how non-ASCII characters in email addresses
need to be encoded.

The problem is that mail transport does not allow (or at least didn't
allow in the past) non-ASCII characters in any of the mail headers,
because various mail servers need to look at the headers.  So Emacs
encodes the non-ASCII characters in quoted-printable encoding.
