Nevermind. I found out what is going on.
I tracked it down to a stylesheet issue.
The numbers are actually present in the HTML code all along (smwsortkey).
They are usually set with display=none.
It appears the structure of the page is different when called with
Extension:Call, and in turns, invalidates the stylesheet from SMW.
I had to force .smwsortkey to be hidden in my skin specific stylesheet to
get rid of the numbers.

Subject: [Semediawiki-user] Something odd with Extension:Call and SMW
I am trying to use #ask queries inside templates and call these templates
using the extension Call.
Somehow, Extension:Call seems to distort the display of values from the
For example, a direct query on a list of events shows the following dates:
24 July 2009 10:45:41
17 July 2009
10 July 2009
Within a 'Call' page, I get the following :
2455037.448391224 July 2009 10:45:41
245503017 July 2009
245502310 July 2009
Oddly enough, I get the same extra numbers (characters ?) when I copy and
paste the 'good' results from the ask query above into a text editor.
My questions : Where do these extra numbers come from ? and what should I
look for inside the code of Call to fix that display ?
I know this is probably a question for the developer of the Call extension,
but since it is happening with the way #ask queries are displayed, I
thought I would ask here as well.
