[Solved]Package installed with 'makepkg -si' shows as 'Community'

How can a program build & installed with makepkg -si show up as 'Community' package?

Discovered this when I ran a dmenu script that shows which and how many packages are in each installed repo.
I then found out dmenu is listed as 'Community' which should be 'AUR'(in this script)
Some output for dmenu - patched version:

pacman -Qi dmenu |awk '/Version|Packager/ {print}'
Version         : 5.0-1
Packager        : qinohe

pacman -Sl | grep dmenu
community dmenu 5.0-1 [installed]

pacman -Qm | grep dmenu
....

Some output for community repo version:

pacman -Qi dmenu |awk '/Version|Packager/ {print}'
Version         : 5.0-1
Packager        : Levente Polyak <anthraxx@archlinux.org>

pacman -Sl | grep dmenu
community dmenu 5.0-1 [installed]

I'm running dmenu with some patches and am sure the patched version is what I'm using.

Dmenu is the only package showing this behavior, other apps installed with 'makepkg -si' show up when running 'pacman -Qm'

The issue is, that

pacman -Sl

lists packages available in the enabled repositories.
The flag "[installed]" is appended, if the package is installed as per the local pacman database.
So the output from pacman does not tell you, that the package is installed from the respective repository, but that a package with the given name is both available in the repository and is installed on your local machine.

So, shouldn't the installed package not be shown by 'pacman -Qm |grep dmenu'? or is it bound by that same rule?

Meaning, if I use the official PKGBUILD and add some patches, install with 'makepkg -si' it should show running 'pacman -Qm' or am I missing the point here?

There's no matching beyond the pkgname. If the name is the same, pacman assumes it's the same package.
