The short answer is that it appears to be a rendering bug.  The happy
response is that I just finished a reworking of the shield image
generation process[0] which appears to have fixed that bug as a side

County shield support is still pending[1], so it just gets the fallback
shields for now.

[0] The main benefit is that shield clusters are now generated on demand,
    rather than in a separate batch process.  This should help keep the
    rendered map more up to date.

[1] Including New Jersey county routes.  I took them out because they
    didn't really fit into the code reworking I did.  They'll return when
    I get the general-purpose county shield rendering working.
