They mutated as part of the 3.0.1 update, as stated on:

The UTC made this change to clarify the status of UTR's which are
normatively a part of the Unicode Standard and UTR's which are to
be considered standards in their own right. The intent is to assist other
organizations in understanding and correctly referencing versions
of the Unicode Standard or other standards maintained by the UTC.

Because no one saw any particular need to introduce yet another 4LA
which wasn't in current or prospective use, when "Superseded UTR"
would serve.
