0010544: Elven caravan brought metal (gold, bronze), gem (black diamond) or stone (bismuthinite) pedestal
Given that elves generally do not have access to (normal) metals they probably shouldn't bring metal pedestals either.
No tags attached.

Neither of these even offend elf sensibilities in the first place and anything that falls onto a elf site is laundered with 'grown' status to be used again.

Trade goods are the only outlet that elves have to market metal items, which is where i think they recycling metal items despite not having metalworking trades or access to metal weapons/armor to allocate instead of discarding them.

Usual process goes (animal drops dead = site disassembles, hence 'grown teeth' by elf entity) but for metal objects (metal drops on site = dissassembles >/= reassembled)

Can confirm in my save in v0.47.05 that elven caravan brought a "grown light yellow diamond altar" - presumably closely related to this bug. The object is indeed decorated using wood

I also just encountered this in 0.47.05. The elves sold me a "grown microcline altar". It is, in fact, decorated with wood. I can provide a save if that would be helpful.
