Agreed, that sounds wrong. However, that's not how the route appears
from here:

 show route 195.128.231.0/24 detail | match "AS path: [0-9AM]"
                AS path: 9002 13249 13249 13249 6886 196629 35748 I
                AS path: 9002 13249 13249 13249 6886 196629 35748 I
                AS path: AS2 PA[5]: 3356 13249 6886 AS_TRANS 35748
                AS path: AS4 PA[4]: 13249 6886 196629 35748
                AS path: Merged[5]: 3356 13249 6886 196629 35748 I
                AS path: AS2 PA[6]: 1299 3356 13249 6886 AS_TRANS 35748
                AS path: AS4 PA[4]: 13249 6886 196629 35748
                AS path: Merged[6]: 1299 3356 13249 6886 196629 35748 I

So in our case the AS4 path seems normal.
