Theme update identifies falsely child-theme

just created a child-theme with the name "sigma" (child theme created through wp cli saffold). WordPress update tool marks it as needed update which is strange for a child theme in general, let alone a brand new one.

as it turns out, the update tool looks for name and version, comparing them to already published themes on wordpress.org: https://wordpress.org/themes/sigma/

but it doesnt validate if these actually exist on my wordpress installation, neither sees the diference between a theme and a child-theme.
