I checked available repolist using this command:

Redirecting to '/usr/bin/dnf repolist' (see 'man yum2dnf') Last metadata expiration check: 0:07:41 ago on Wed Feb 8 12:13:52 2017. repo id repo name status adobe-linux-x8664 Adobe Systems Incorporated 3 *fedora Fedora 25 - x8664 51,669 google-chrome google-chrome 3 *rpmfusion-free RPM Fusion for Fedora 25 - Free 541 *rpmfusion-free-updates RPM Fusion for Fedora 25 - Free - Updates 143 *updates Fedora 25 - x86_64 - Updates 15,886

There are 7 names I can see, but when I listed all installed packages I get several others repo names, that are not listed in the printing above.

Why this happened?

Use dnf not yum. Yum is dead.

It looks like you upgraded from F24. The @anaconda items are the original packages installed by anaconda when you installed F24. The @commandline items are the packages installed by the upgrade process because they were downloaded and installed all together off the hard drive.

That is right, I upgraded F24 to F25, but it was a few months ago. There were several updates of the kernel, now its 4.9.7-201.fc25.x86_64, and some packages, at least NetworkManager I'm pretty sure was updated as well, so why system kept @commands repository name and not "fedora" or "updates"?

The upgrade process downloads all the packages into one directory then reboots to install the whole batch together. This means that the source of the packages is lost in the process. According to dnf, it just sees a bunch of packages to install from the command line.

Thanks for info, I'll try to re-install F25 from the beginning than.

Why?? What's wrong with the current system? Does it really matter that the repo is listed as @commandline? Are you going to just reinstall for every release now?

The matter of trust, I suspect my system is penetrated. So I did fresh new installation of Fedora-25. Anaconda is still there, but @commandline disappeared. And more interesting, I get another repository name, same case - it is not listed in: yum repolist

adcli.x86_64 0.8.0-2.fc24 @koji-override-0

Where this time @koji-override-0 comes from???
