I would think that this means that those directories are folders
within the repo Eng-Tech, regardless of your file system structure,
because svn list etc. doesn't combine file system level directories
and repo level directories in their output. But they should have if
those to folders where the repos beneath Eng-Tech in your file system.

This should be really the content of the repository itself.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think Eng-Tech is not empty, but consists the
folders you wrote first. Maybe Eng-Tech does have content, like the
other repos unter Eng-Tech in the file system, but thos directories
aren't used for some reason? Maybe your repos started that way,
something didn't work as expected and things have changed?

Are you able to rename the repos beneath Eng-Tech in your file system?
That way nobody coudl use them anymore and you were really sure what
is in the repo Eng-Tech and what is not. If you rename name ABC-SDKs
to ABC-SDKs_ for some seconds, your svn list of Eng-Tech should
refelct those renamings or it's clear that Eng-Tech does have content,
the versioned directories ABC-SDKS and J-SDKs.

In any case, your repo structure is not supported and you should
change it after fully understanding it and possible.
