Anyone know what software uses "MT-Proxy-ID"?

I got this error hit via the haproxy socket, I noticed that there are a few hits when searching for it, all related to corrupt headers with lighttpd and people seem to be assuming it is lighttpd's fault but in the case I received, it is clear that there are some junk characters at the beginning of the request. (Perhaps lighttpd needs an option to print errors with hex encoding in order to see the characters causing the problems there)

There is also this proxy blocking module for nginx that lists it when searching for signs of a proxy:

I am wondering if this is some kind of web "fuzzer" software or if it is just poorly coded proxy software or if other people have seen problems with requests with a MT-Proxy-ID. (All the listings that I have seen, locally and on the web, that include the MT-Proxy-ID header have the same 1804289383 value.)

Thanks for any insights.
