The first step is to run mdls on a .sty file in Terminal and see what it gives you for kMDItemKind and kMDItemContentType (I think those are the relevant ones).

Once you find the kMDItemContentType, you'll probably end up having to inspect the output of lsregister to see what application or plugin is defining it. I'd guess that whatever is defining it has a localization problem with the way types are defined. On Mojave the command is:

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -dump
