Found the solution to this, odd as it is:
I was puzzling over this and comparing DITA maps and along the way I noticed that every time I generated Eclipse Help, and then created a .jar file from the eclipse_help_out contents, the jar file became larger.
So I deleted the “eclipse_help_out” folder and let it generate a new one — and sure enough the new jar file was a fraction of the size of the last one.
So on a hunch I tried that in the infocenter and the mystery topics reappeared.
Eclipse Help output must be appending things rather than rewriting, and bloating the jar file, and just scrambling things somewhere.
So, new SOP for me — delete output folders before each generation.
