That's part of the URI. It's not a special field in the Apache error log.

Since there's no referrer, it's not obvious where the client got the URL from. I suspect it's a badly written client and you will find other weirdness in the same request's line from the access log.

It could also be a normal bot combined with a badly written website that contains a link to this incorrect URL or an email that contained the incorrect URL that a normal user has clicked on.

The parameters themselves make me suspect the badly written bot.
