The descriptive note comes from item 182 in :


Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Summarizes the evidence which indicates that Weber's father adopted the title "von" indicating nobility without any official permission. States there is no evidence that Weber knew his father's title was self-bestowed. Gives genealogical table showing Weber's descendants through 1985 and the sixth generation.
