DNF: Another strange behavior of dnf (?) after upgrade: rpmfusion-updates-testing enabled

I recently upgraded my Workstation from Fedora 22 to Fedora 23. I had rpmfusion (free, and non-free, and updates for both) enabled my machine but rpmfusion-updates-testing was disabled (as well as fedora-updates-testing).

Today, I realized that rpmfusion-updates-testing enabled all of a sudden (fedora-updates-testing remained disabled).

Has anyone any idea if this could have happened during upgrade process? I definitely didn't do it by myself, since I don't need updates-testing, and had I done it, I would have enabled fedora-updates-testing too.

Is the correct, rpmfusion-updates-testing enabled and fedora-updates-testing disabled.
On update to rpmfusion-nonfree-release-23-0.1.noarch should have enable rpmfusion-updates-testing , rpmfusion still in a beta state we need use rpmfusion-updates-testing to have updates

UPDATE: this is fixed

I don't know the answer about how it could have been enabled, but I think it's normal and default for Fedora 23.

It does seem that the rpmfusion-updates-testing repo contains normal packages that many people probably want and that aren't included in the regular rpmfusion repos. I don't think they contain new versions of packages found in the regular rpmfusion repos, so it won't create conflict issues. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong, please. I couldn't find any information on the rpmfusion page, so I'm just looking at some packages in the repos to draw this conclusion.)

It seems that the package maintainers just haven't been able to move them out of testing for 23.
