It *is* printed:
From lib/interface.c (net-tools 1.60):

if (hw->print != NULL && (! (hw_null_address(hw, ptr->hwaddr) &&
printf(_("HWaddr %s "), hw->print(ptr->hwaddr));
if (ptr->flags & IFF_PORTSEL) {
printf(_("Media:%s"), if_port_text[ptr->map.port][0]);
if (ptr->flags & IFF_AUTOMEDIA)

So, something has set IFF_PORTSEL, and ptr->map.port is not within bounds.
Or you have a kernel which does not support IFF_PORTSEL, but something
else is using ptr->flags with different values...
