The repository format and the filesystem format are two different
things. The repository format lives at $REPOS/format, while the
filesystem format is in REPOS/db/format, and was added in 1.4. In the
foreseeable future, only the filesystem format will change, and bdb and
fsfs formats can change independent of each other.

These are filesystem formats, and the latter specifies a sharded layout
with 1000 revs per shard. You can read more about FSFS filesystem

That document is a little out-of-date, but it is correct in that the
repository format in version 1.4 and higher is 5. If you look in
$REPOS/format, you'll see that.

Looks like you're seeing what you ought to; no cause for concern. Does
the repository *work* like it should?
