Amazon Photos saves CR3 as tiny DNG broken files. Anyone else experience same?

I know Amazon Photos does not yet support Canon's CR3 format but a problem is that they seem to be taking either the CR3 file or the XMP file (not sure which) and saving it next to the JPG when backing up entire photos folder.

Inside each folder, I have my CR3 Raw file, the jpg with it and XMP file. Now looking on Amazon photos looks like a cluttered mess with bizarre DNG extension files there with no preview next to each jpg.  The DNG's are half a MB to 1MB in size so not nearly as big as the CR3 file and much bigger than the XMP file.  No idea what amazon is doing here but couldn't find anything on google or here on it.

Was wondering if anybody else who has used Amazon Photos has seen this DNG issue for their backups.  Is it just me?
