Since these are not actual items in the game, I'm assuming this behavior is not intended.
- Press [ctrl]+[c].
- Select some entities and keep mouse1 pressed in.
- Open character screen with your keyboard shortcut.
- Move mouse over an item in the logistics requests section.
- Release mouse1 button.
- Click mouse1 to select the logistics request.
- Click the open character screen keyboard shortcut again to close the popup to modify the logistics request.
- The item has been transformed into a "Copy paste tool".
