Try 'debian'. I suspect that Google are hand-tweaking these (they use
Debian/Ubuntu in-house). They assume that the surfer wishes to download the
distribution or get some information about it, so the facet changes.

I would assume these are exceptions since, much like you, I have never come
across that before. Think of it as a 'special case', as in searches for
stock symbols which bring up charts, quotes,and zeitgeist.

Best wishes,
