Image overlay with straight alpha

I have here png images with an alpha, rendered by Blackmagic Fusion. When I overly them on top of a video, I get dark boarders around the color.

ffmpeg command:

ffmpeg -i "video.mp4" -i straight_alpha0001.png -filter_complex "[0:v][1:v]overlay[out]" -map '[out]' -f opengl "test"

ffmpeg output:

Theoretical I could fix this with an expression like:

r/a, g/a, b/a, a

But I don't found any way to apply this.

I am not 100% sure if this is a straight alpha, but when I render this png's I have an option "Pre-Divide by Alpha", normally this option is off. If I turn it on, the overlay in ffmpeg is good, without boarder.
The Problem is, that I mostly don't know, if somebody turn this option on, or not. So it would be nice to have an option in ffmpeg to fix this.

Your png file is with premultiplied alpha. Overlay filter have now alpha option.
If I set alpha to premultiplied and format to rgb I get intended output.
