I'm not an egyptologist, but I think it's just a scribal ligature between U+132F4 and U+130B8. The former is just a folded piece of cloth representing the sound /s/. Usually a long thin sign is combined with a following sign to save space. These two wouldn't fit together well, so I guess the scribes decided to just put one on top of the other. There are other similar examples in the code charts.
