 Endpoints MUST NOT send this extension in a TLS connection that does not use
 QUIC (such as the use of TLS with TCP defined in {{!TLS13}}).  A fatal
-unsupported_extension alert MUST be sent if this extension is received when the
-transport is not QUIC.
+unsupported_extension alert (an error of 0x16e) MUST be sent if this extension
+is received when the transport is not QUIC.

I agree with @MikeBishop. Specifying the QUIC error code to send if the extension is received when the transport isn't QUIC doesn't make much sense.
