Yes upside down fork! STM forks can fit long or short boots , but all them are upside down.
The yellow are boots, not legs, the legs are the black pipes connected to the crown, the stanctions are protected from the yellow boots and not visible with long boots installed.

I can't get my head around how that fork works at all. If it's an upside down design, how does the brake move with the wheel?

brakes are connected to the stanctions
there is an hole in the legs to allow brake pivot to move up and down
boots are protecting this hole from dust

The brake bridge and mounts are connected, they slide up and down with the stanchions... you can see it better looking at one without the covers 8)
