It still needs to know what partitions are being used for that device. So
it is parsing --useexisting as the drives which make up md0

I am guessing the syntax is supposed to be:

part raid.0011 --usepart=/dev/sda1
part raid.0012 --usepart=/dev/sdb1

raid /    --device=md0 --fstype="xfs" --level=1 --useexisting raid.0011

This will still reformat the raid device from the man page:

--useexisting - Use an existing RAID device and reformat it.
