@dvrkps a few quick comments, including I will attempt to share my personal understanding.

go mod tidy ensures your current go.mod reflects all possible build tags/OS/architecture combinations (as described here).

In contrast, other commands like go build and go test only update go.mod based on the current build invocation's tags/OS/architecture.

go mod tidy can also pull in test dependencies that go build might not.

More generally, part of the reason modules exist is to record precise dependency requirements (in go.mod) and create reproducible builds. If a particular dependency does not itself have a go.mod (because the dependency has not yet opted in to modules itself), then the dependency lacking a go.mod will have its dependencies recorded in a parent go.mod (e.g., your go.mod), along with an // indirect comment to indicate that the recorded information is from an indirect dependency rather than a direct dependency.

In light of that, could you comment a little more on what aspect of your results is unexpected here?

Also, if you are curious why a particular module is showing up in your go.mod, then running go mod why -m <module> is one way to answer that question:
https://tip.golang.org/cmd/go/#hdr-Explain_why_packages_or_modules_are_needed

There are other useful tools for inspecting requirements and versions, such as go mod graph and go list -m all.

Finally, I am a member of the community just like you, so happy to learn if anything I wrote above is incorrect.

@thepudds thx for looking.

My repo is just playground. I use only Consul as dependency.

I’m not sure that all indirect modules are consul dependencies, but they seem to be.

Prometheus, Datadog, Appengine, ...

Nothing strange here anymore. I close it. Thx.
