Description of problem:
See the white point entry in the attached screenshot: you will see a symbol that pretends to be a degree symbol, but neither it is. Moreover Kelvin scale is not a graded scale, so the symbol must be removed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Show only K not something like °K
Fixed in gnome-color-manager also:

Kelvin is not a graded scale
Fixed in colord-kde as well:
I'm not sure how should I close this bug, please change it if I set the wrong status.
Well, it's a graded scale with an affine offset (zero-intercept) that happens to be 0. ;-) I've seen °K in common use and I'm not convinced it's incorrect. But ºK as in the screenshot was definitely wrong (that was the superscript o sign, not the degree sign), and just K is more correct than °K (because it's a plain unit because the affine offset is 0), so it's fine to stick with just K.
