In Progress CPANEL-42708 - Htaccess redirection appears on List Domains weirdly

I noticed something weird which bothered me. I'd like your assistance to verify that i don't understand anything wrong.

We make redirections through the .htaccess file on public_html. Nothing new, have been using it for many years.

Had to create a new subdomain on cPanel -> Domains -> Domains.

On .htaccess we have a redirection for to which is made with

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RedirectMatch 301 /somefolder/

On cPanel -> Domains -> Domains it shows the following

DomainDocument RootRedirects ToForce HTTPS Redirect (main domain)/public_html Off

However, our main domain certainly does not redirect to /somefolder/ which is rather confusing.

I also tried the simple Redirect and it also gives me the same result on List Domains.

What i'm getting wrong here?

Kindest regards

Hey there! When I add that code manually to my .htaccess file, I see the following in the cPanel >> Redirects interface:

However, I agree the Domains interface doesn't present this in the best possible way.

I've created case CPANEL-42708 with our developers so they can look into this behavior, and I'll be sure to post updates here as I get them.
