Your description implies that it isn't in the metadata at all, other than
by way of the certificate generated when you installed the SP. Nor does it
matter what's in that certificate in practice.

Very unlikely, but since I don't know what "relying party error" means, I
couldn't say for certain.

I guess that depends on what you did, but the certificate is whatever you
configure it to be, and the metadata is never to be generated and used
directly without modification, so it's entirely under your control what
you give to others.

I don't know what the problem is since you didn't describe it, but I doubt
it has anything to do with it.
