New CZ Compact withy combo magazine?

After seeing not much in three big box outdoors I came upon a CZ Compact for $550.00. Not a steal, but not a gouge either. Here's the thing. It came with two 15 round 9MM. Or two 11 round .40 magazines. I've not seen that before. A magazine designed for two calibers? Or do I need to get out more?

During the standard capacity magazine ban as part of the '94 AWB I heard of people using 10rd .40S&W magazines for 9mmP in some pistols.
Maybe CZ took the idea and officially applied it?

I like it for the steel frame vs the aluminum of the P-01...CZs are my jam.

I wonder if it will also feed.357 Sig...or if a
40/.357 Sig/9mm set of conversion barrels are offered either way.
A
357 Sig CZ75 steel frame that could step down through
40 to 9mm all from the factory would be on my" want list"

When I first pulled the P01 (a version of the CZ75 Compact) that I recently bought out of its box, about the first thing I noticed was that the bottom witness hole on the side of the magazine showed "11 rds .40". I thought the gunshop had ordered the wrong gun until I confirmed that the pistol was indeed a 9mm. So as I was thinking 'how did they pack a .40 gun with 9mm magazines?', I saw on the other side of the magazines it says "15 rds 9mm".

Caught me by surprise, but they work fine. I know guys on other forums say they often use 9mm & 40 magazines interchangeably for caliber-conversion kits in glocks, although I've never tried it myself.

Fwiw, I'm nearly positive that the factory CZ magazines that came with the gun are made by MecGar. I bought a couple MecGars to have some spares, and they're just identical, from finish to floorplate to even the same unusual blue follower color. I've only put probably 300-400 rounds thru the gun yet, but the magazines have functioned flawlessly so far.
