The printf() library function is not part of coreutils.  You need to
look elsewhere for help.  You will find some guidance at

But you are printing arbitrary binary data as if it were
human-readable text.  What did you _expect_ to see?  If you directly
send the binary data within an image file to a terminal device (e.g.
with cat) you would get a similar result.
