If you transpose the note eeses down an augmented 4th the note beseses results.

If you let the chords display in \new Staff you get a warning:
warning: Transposing eeses'' by ges makes alteration larger than double
warning: Could not find glyph-name for alteration -3/2

2.18.2 uses aes instead of beseses, thus the strange chord-name.

To circumvent, you could do \transpose a dis instead.

Though, tbh I doubt chords based on ees, aes, des _in_ a-major are
correct at all.
Probably some modulation/key-change before? Or copy from a weird source?
