There's nothing wrong here. That's just the way things are implemented
internally. This may change in the future without prior notice, so
you shouldn't rely on it.

If you want to dig more, you have to look at how the hidden function ("T")

>>> def f():
...   class T: pass
>>> f.__code__.co_consts
(None, <code object T at 0x7f4d9d0f4a00, file "<stdin>", line 2>, 'T')
>>> dis.dis(f.__code__.co_consts[1])
  2           0 LOAD_NAME                0 (__name__)
              3 STORE_NAME               1 (__module__)
              6 LOAD_CONST               0 ('f.<locals>.T')
              9 STORE_NAME               2 (__qualname__)
             12 LOAD_CONST               1 (None)
             15 RETURN_VALUE
