There's no hook for doing that with the data files themselves, because
they're meant to be internal details of the implementation, but the data
coming back from the enrollment helper, which is what's malformed to
begin with, can be corrected at the point when the helper is run.
Essentially, you'd replace the configured call to dogtag-submit with a
script or other program that checked $CERTMONGER_OPERATION for the
values "SUBMIT" and "POLL", ran the dogtag-submit helper, filtered its
output to fix this mistake, and returned the helper's exit status to
keep things in line with the daemon's expectations.
Though, if you're running something older than 0.77, please give 0.77.4
(currently in testing for Fedora 20 and 21) or a development snapshot
(from the ipa-devel repo) a try. The 0.77 release had a lot of its
parsing reworked as part of adding support for SCEP reply formats, which
I think fixed this. The development snapshots add more authentication
options to the generic Dogtag helper which you may also want, depending
on the enrollment profile you're using.
