That's a bug.  IIUC it's because cl-generic.el is preloaded, whereas
package--builtin-versions is populated via loaddefs.el.

Not sure what you're referring to.

If you use README.md, it will be ignored (quoting

      (let ((rm (archive--get-section
                 "Commentary" '("README" "README.rst"
                                ;; Most README.md files seem to be currently
                                ;; worse than the Commentary: section :-(
                                ;; "README.md"
                 srcdir mainsrcfile)))
