wp_image_add_srcset_and_sizes trys to parse images from external pages, fails with error

If a user embeds image content from another domain by copy pasting and includes a tag like

<img class="wp-image-199052" srs="externaldomain...">

it seems like wordpress trys to parse the file as it were hosted in its own instance. This won't work of course, because it cannot access the file in the filesystem. It then fails with the following warning:

PHP Warning:  Undefined array key "file" in /wp-includes/media.php on line 1676"

This looks strange. How do you add the image? Not as html code?
We could get this error when we add it as attachment. Can you share a screenshot from added code?
I want to experience this error and apply its solution. But when I try, I don't see any error.

Hi, reopening, because the error still persists.
Ah, whats probably important to know is, that its a page without the gutenberg editor, so its the old default tinymce editor. It probably happens when a user copies a picture from another wp instance on another domain into our wp instance.
Here is the full code:

[caption id="attachment_199052" align="alignleft" width="262"]<a href=""><img class="wp-image-199052" src="" alt="" width="262" height="230" /></a> Was macht den Mobility Point in Salzburg aus? Dazu Micha Hoppe im Gespräch mit Josef Reithofer. Bild: Radiofabrik/Monika Daoudi[/caption]

Note: The domain is not our own, this is the external domain.

We still have this problem. What can I do so that a core developer takes a look at this?
