Can confirm this for 31.18.
Probably a 'meat' preference that is mistakenly used because wagons are classified as creatures?
(wagons are not constructed of wagon wood, but of other varieties of tree/fungoid-wood...wagons cannot be moved, but if one would be butchered, would it yield the wagon wood?)

No - caravan wagons are composed of a material named "wagon wood" because Toady specifically didn't want to bother readding support for raceglosses (i.e. the ability for creatures to be made of varying inorganic materials, a feature originally used only for wagons and the nonexistent treants), and a dwarf seems to have been able to have a preference for it, likely due to it using WOOD_TEMPLATE which gives it the [WOOD] material token.

The wagon that holds your supplies on embark is completely unrelated to this.

Confirmed in 40.03 - it's listed in his preference in the same place a wood preference ought to be.
