Based on Kirill's subsequent email saying this is already queued to
the merge window, I assume I need to do nothing here.

I think a signed-off-by from a robot, i.e., not from a real person, is
meaningless, and I don't think I would personally accept it. It's
certainly OK to indicate that a patch was auto-generated, but I think
a real person still needs to take responsibility for it.

Documentation/process/submitting-patches.rst says it must contain a
real name (no pseudonyms or anonymous contributions), and I don't
think a robot fits in the spirit of that.

I see that
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/rt/linux-rt-devel.git/commit/?id=8a29a3bae2a2
(mentioned below) does have a good signed-off-by from Sebastian, but
that's not *this* patch, so I don't know what's what.
