I checked in my previously extracted folder (FW_ZENWIFI_XT8_300438643181) and there was a different file inside along with the newly extracted Zenwifi one, both exactly the same size.

RT-AX95Q_3.0.0.4_386_43181-g6099e58_cferom_puresqubi (original)

Maybe it's just been renamed to reflect the correct designation.
