Cygwin Ports uses setup-*.exe for installing its packages.  It's also

If I did it was totally unintentional especially considering I don't
know what a Cygwin Ports is though I imagine it about porting open
source software to Cygwin and perhaps maybe a site. Are you telling me
that is a "Cygwin Ports" site?

No.  This is what Cygwin Ports is:

Ah dang! You're right! I recalled that setup asks for a local package
dir and I typically keep a Cygwin folder with all of the stuff I use
downloaded in case anybody else wants to use it locally. I recalled how
it has directories under it with encoded URL names so I decided to check
my "repo" and lo and behold there's a directory there.
I had no idea that this "Ports" URL was different than any other URL in
that list...

OK so is this bad? Should I remove it? How would I "back this out"?

Just remove it.
