I don't remember precisely, but logic-type-expr is likely a

I have already opened a bug for that in Frama-C bts
( I forgot to tell you, sorry.
It does not seem to be a Why issue (Why is given an incorrect program
and is complaining about it), so I guess that Frama-C bts/mailing list
are suitable for the discussion, at least for now.

In fact, jessie/share/*.h already contain some axiomatization of
strings that you might find useful (I'm afraid it could be better
documented, though). In the mean time, we'll investigate the issue that
you reported for your own axiomatization.
