Unknown PTR record in DNS; it’s not there in Cloudflare DNS Settings

(1.) There is an extra, unwanted, unexpected, unadded PTR record in my DNS settings, with value set to the Domain Name “”. You can see it here in MxToolbox Reverse Lookup:
MxToolbox shows unwanted PTR TXT record

(2.) cPanel also notices and complains about the extra PTR record:

(3.) Yet my DNS records in Cloudflare only have one PTR TXT record, the one I want.

I haven’t found anyone else with this same problem. Where could the PTR record to “” be coming from !??
