This was the legacy rpm-md repo published (more for proof of concept
than anything else); I don't think this was ever preset as the
configured repo on openSUSE. Can it be that you set this manually at
one point?

That's a really weird thing to say, since it's absolutely wrong. While
it is true it is the legacy layout, it was definitely not
proof-of-concept. That's the hybrid layout for YaST+rpm-md repository
metadata. Package managers that supported exclusively rpm-md had to
point to that location until apparently earlier this week.

That's been in use for several years by SUSE distributions, though I'm
glad the migration apparently finally happened.
