Quoting MemorySanitizer docs 

: MemorySanitizer requires that all program code is instrumented. 
: This also includes any libraries that the program depends on, even 
: libc. Failing to achieve this may result in false reports. For the 
: same reason you may need to replace all inline assembly code that 
: writes to memory with a pure C/C++ code.

Have you tried compiling PCRE with memory sanitizer as well?
