Description

I'm not sure about this but I think there is extra % for 100%.

Example:
Compatibility with WordPress %s: 100%% (according to its author)

Thanks for your report, but the double %% is correct.

The string is passed through sprintf(), where % has a special meaning as a placeholder. When needing to use an actual percentage sign and not a placeholder, you need to use two to escape it.

See https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.sprintf.php
