Could you please tell in which table did the entry created? I’ve just tested it, but I couldn’t find the empty entry you said.
Also, could you please try to reproduce the issue on one of the WordPress’ stock themes (like Twenty Fifteen) with other plugins deactivated? If it disappears, then you can activate the theme and plugins one by one to see which one causes the issue.
