I have done a branch checkout on
master but magit rectangle is on
origin/master and not only on master.
Quoting the manual:
Magit displays references in logs a bit differently from how Git does it.
Local branches are blue and remote branches are green. Of course that
depends on the used theme, as do the colors used for other types of
references. The current branch has a box around it, as do remote
branches that are their respective remote's
If a local branch and its push-target point at the same commit, then their names are combined to preserve space and to make that relationship visible. For example:
feature origin/feature [blue-] [green-------]
