Description:
------------
When creating new CSR, it will add "ST=Some-State, O=Internet Widgits Pty Ltd" to the subject if not defined in openssl_csr_new -function call. This has been a bug in PHP for a long time.

Test script:
---------------
<?php
$config=array(
    "private_key_bits" => 2048,
    "private_key_type" => OPENSSL_KEYTYPE_RSA,
);
$privkey = openssl_pkey_new($config);

$csr = openssl_csr_new(array("C"=>"FI"), $privkey);

openssl_csr_export($csr, $csrout);
echo($csrout);

/* using same system, but command line openssl command to generate csr works just fine. I have been using this code to do csr:
 $csr = shell_exec('openssl req -new -sha256 -key '.$tempDir.'/private.key -outform '.$format.' -subj "'.$subject.'"');
*/
?>
$ php test.php > /tmp/foo3 
$ openssl req -in /tmp/foo3 -noout -text


Expected result:
----------------
Certificate Request:
    Data:
    Version: 0 (0x0)
    Subject: C=FI

Actual result:
--------------
Certificate Request:
    Data:
    Version: 0 (0x0)
    Subject: C=FI, ST=Some-State, O=Internet Widgits Pty Ltd

How does your openssl.cnf look?

I have not checked. But I have tried this with different distros, different php -versions and with different operating systems (macos and linux). Also have tried docker images. And as I notided in the test script, doing the same thing on the same computer using command line openssl command, it will work as expected.

I need different kind of subjects when I am creating certificates for systems other than SSL. That is why to subject is completely different what is normally (SSL) used.

If I create own openssl.cnf file containing: 
distinguished_name  = req_distinguished_name
[req_distinguished_name]
[v3_req]
[v3_ca]

it will work as expected
