Packages downgrade on SB32 rebase

Just upgraded/rebased to Silverblue 32 beta and noticed these packages downgraded. Was wondering if someone might know if that is intentional or not:

This happens because of the way Fedora does “freezing” around release time in order to stabilize the package set. Basically Fedora 32 repos froze in order to control the changes in order to get media built without blocker bugs, but Fedora 31 keeps chugging along without being frozen. So Fedora 31 progresses while Fedora 32 is frozen and you end up with newer versions of packages in the Fedora 31 stable repos than you see in Fedora 32.

It will pretty much all sort itself out in the next week as things are unfrozen.
