Incorrect file length

One of my mp3 files has these parameters in MP3tag 2.96:
length: 25.32, frequency: 32000, bitrate: 32 kbit/s, codec MPEG 1 Layer II, tag: ID3v2.3 (ID3v1 ID3v2.3).
In file properties (Windows 10): length: 6.25 (real value), Bit rate: 128 kbps.

Why the length is incorrect in MP3tag? And what's the true bitrate?
Is it bug?

Probably the header is corrupted.
See the HowTos on how to check files for errors:

I used MP3val for this files and it fixed the problem! Thanks!
Just interesting: why file properties in Windows file manager were correct?

see e.g. here:

or search yourself for "duration", "bit rate", "incorrect"
