That's not quite right.

The previous kernel was actually "kernel-default-4.4.69-2.2". That was
replaced by "kernel-default-4.4.69-2.3"
I did not have kernel-default-4.4.69-2.2 installed before (see below)

The new kernel is a recompile of the same kernel as before. The two
cannot co-exist. Both of them will have the kernel stored as
"/boot/kernel-default-4.4.69-2", and that would give a conflict. So the
older kernel was actually removed by "zypper" during your update. The
"purge-kernels" service did not have anything to do.

You are probably right, that you have not seen this happen with 42.2.
But we do often see it happen with Tumbleweed. Once the final release
of 42.3 is out, you probably won't see this happen. But the development
is being handled similarly to Tumbleweed, so these recompiles may occur
again during the development phase.

I hope that helps explain what you are seeing, and why it isn't a problem.

Thank you for your explanation. The issue I experience, however, is
the following (using kernel stable repo):

rpm -q kernel-default:

as expected, since I have multiversion.kernels = latest,latest-1,running.

Applying "zypper dup" pulls in kernel-default-4.4.69-2.3, which will be
removed after a reboot with purge-kernels.service. This does not make
sense at all in my opinion.

Any idea?
