Space-Track numbers wrongly again?

The last entries in Satcat probably show a new wrong numbering.

49044 49045 2021 066 A B Nauka and r/b
49046-49048 fragments from 3 different launches
49049-49051 noy yet assigned
49052-49054 2021 068 A-C 3 objects from Electron launch

Will 49049-49051 be 2021-67 A-C?
I'm not aware of a launch between Nauka and Electron.

Electron launch  should be 2021 67 A-C.
Looking at the orbital data objects A and B will probably be interchanged.
A is in 241x610 km orbit and most likely the electron 2nd stage.
B is in 598x610 km orbit and would be the Monolith satellite
C is in 344x595 km orbit and can be the Kick stage.

Hopefully this will be cleared up soon.
