only version 7 magic files. `/usr/share/misc/magic.mgc' is version 8

Note that the version there is 5.4; this doesn't match anything as far
as I can tell.

Any ideas?

Which version of poky are you working with? There was a problem that we had with file at one point and thought was fixed. If you check in your
tmp/sysroots directory for the host machine, do you have a file.real?

We needed to create a cover script which correctly pointed file to the right magic.mgc file.

Hope that helped.
