What, precisely, looks strange about them? There certainly isn't anything
strange about any app having directories with names similar to their config
files, suffixed with ".d" - this is standard practice as we move from
monolithic config files to putting related-but-distinct configs into
separate files in a single directory. In any case, apt.conf.d has no effect

the _beginning_ of the line - all leading white space (in most config files)
is ignored. But apart from whitespace, lines in sources.list (or
sources.list.d/*.list) can only begin with '#' (a comment), 'deb' (a binary
package source) or 'deb-src' (a source-package source) .
