    They seem to contain melee maps but it's a pain to scroll past all of them to get to actual custom downloaded maps.

    Those are uncompressed folders which each contain the default maps (Booty Bay, Avalanche, etc)
    They are supposed to be hidden and all show the maps in one folder, but Reforged broke the archives and now we can see the raw storage folders

    When you delete them, Blizzard re-downloads them as they're considered essential, being part of the original installation
