It's primary use case is when you*search*  for some package and then see the
available versions, where they are distributed, and who maintains them.

As such, the necessary knowledge about the user is "the user searched for
this package name".
When clicking on this page:

It shows all packages from A-Z making it software directory by
definition here:https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/directory

They're just showing their data in all arrangements they could come up with. It's not a significant use case, compared to others.

repology.el package probbaly provides only access to searches within
the full database.

And yet, you still argue that it is doing something wrong, somehow.
