brandelf and linux (realplay)

I have realplay installed via the ports.
The executable 'realplayer' is installed in /usr/local/bin/realplay.
When I verify the brandelf status of it, I get:
$ brandelf /usr/local/bin/realplay
File '/usr/local/bin/realplay' is of brand 'SVR4' (0).
(This is on both, 4.X-Stable and 5.X-(Almost)Stable).
This raises two questions by me:
1. Why does an obvious linux port not brandelf its
executables as Linux during its build?
2. If brandelf indicates a different type than it
actually is (SVR4 instead of Linux), then what
the hack is this brandelf for?
