Best I can tell is that number comes from dividing the pixel horizontal count (720) by the square pixel equivalent (640). 720/640=1.125 the .125 equating -12.5 somehow. The same hold for a 1440x1080 16:9 format. We know that the 1440 is presented/expanded to fill a 1920x1080 space. 1920/1440=1.3333333333 giving that -33.3 number.

But FCP adds this distortion for you. When you place a 1440x1080 clip in a 1920x1080 timeline, it adds the appropriate distortion.
