On a Fedora 31 system I also don't see those directives in the system
openssl.cnf or includes.  Mind you, closer inspection of the code
suggests that in the config file also "RequestCAPath" and "ClientCAPath"
would result in setting the bidirectional CA list.  But I don't find
those either.

So my best guess is that you were testing with approximately a stock
1.1.1 that predates 1.1.1a, modulo security fixes.  Otherwise, it
is unclear how the client CA list (server -> client) ended up being
sent from client -> server.
