I'd guess this may be because the references are all under remotes/,
and git usually doesn't push stuff under remotes.
You could adjust the refspec for the push,  to map that to a path
on github w/o 'remotes' in the path name.

Should 'trunk' be pushed instead of 'master', or is 'master' already mapped to
