Regarding Harshit's first comment..

FWIW, this has nothing to do with services pics.  We have none of 
those, nor routing instances of our own, and when we upgraded to 
7.0R2.7, started seeing these messages.

PR55431 despite its pretty bogus description is probably tracking this 
issue and there is no need to report it (again) ?
