Yes, it stands for petabytes.

This is no bug. You specified --reverse in the command line, and ddrescue started pass 3 from the last possible position because it was not able to determine the size of the input device. I don't know how ddrescue found out the size for pass 1. Maybe the first time you invoked it, the drive was still reporting its size.

The solution is to specify the drive size with the option --size=bytes.
