Interesting error message on import

On importing a large number of keys from a keyring backup, I saw the
message "gpg: assuming bad signature from key 0xE0BB4BCD due to an
unknown critical bit" about a dozen times. Can anyone explain what this
means, whether this is the correct behaviour, and if I should be worried
about it?

        Death to all fanatics!
  Down with categorical imperative!
