Ok, I found the culprit, and it was kind of unexpected, in config not
related to tramp at all:

It's the line
      (push (concat git-gnus-directory "/lisp") load-path)
 ;; Git version of Gnus:
 ;; Not in actual use but can't be removed as long as I use gnus-sync because
 ;; gnus-sync use gnus-gethash and this macro has been removed from gnus in 
emacs 27
 (if (not running-emacs25-or-emacs26)
     (let ((git-gnus-directory
            (if running-xemacs
                (concat git-workspace "/gnus.xemacs")
              (concat git-workspace "/gnus"))))
       (push (concat git-gnus-directory "/lisp") load-path)
       (let ((git-gnus-info-dir (concat git-gnus-directory "/texi")))
        (push git-gnus-info-dir Info-directory-list))))

The ~/git/gnus/ clone is an obsolete clone from 2016, and as the comment
says, have been left alone because I have code that uses gnus-gethash
from here.

The code that uses is, is something called gnus-sync.el from 2011 (or
therabouts), that was a stopgap solution for what is solved by cloud

However, cloud gnus has never worked for me, and since gnus-sync
continued to work, I've procrastinated on the troubleshooting.

But I guess I have to figure it out now.  The author of gnus-sync is
also the author (AFAIK) of the cloudy gnusy stuff (Hi Ted!), so I'm
probably the only user, 10 years on...?
