and I do not recognize the size numbers.

I rarely pay much attention to what the installer suggests, but maybe
those are just the actual _suggestions_ ? Try "Reread partition
table" and see what you get.

Fine idea. I don't see an option for "Reread partition table". Where
is that?

It's well hidden - I can't remember where, sorry.

It did put Swap on sda5, with the size I had made, and then listed
sda6 and sda7 with the sizes I had made., without specifying
mounting points.

Summarizing, it inserted 160GB into the partition array on its own

I think those are the _suggestions_ made - you can accept them or
edit the partition setup to suit your own purpose.

I have always edited the offered arrangement. But I do not remember
ever having the list of Available Storage being ficticious, as it is
in this case.

Ah, that wasn't clear to me - maybe YaST is confused about the size of
your drive?
