Maybe. It depends how the key is propagated. Assuming my "normalized
key" theory is true (which has not been proven yet), then the question
becomes whether the key is propagated before or after the
normalization took place. If before, then things make sense. If
after, then my theory is likely shot, as a normalized key should have
appeared under the right keyid.

Unlikely. The original key had self-sigs issued by the wrong keyid.
This strongly suggests a wrong - but internally consistent - program.
