This is expected.  As with nix-env, there’d normally be a
~/.guix-profile pointing to
/nix/var/nix/profiles/per-user/$USER/profile, which would itself point
to profile-X-link in the same directory (where X is the generation
number.)  So what you’re observing is basically this.

Commit 1c67d63 fixes that.

Yes.  These were leftovers from tests/guix-package.sh.  I think 7a6548c
solves that.
