Yes, I seen this when it came out...
It is a bit normal since GigaDevice was originally only a flash fab.

I agree, but this is quite unusual.

I would like to know what purpose is the 9th wire between the 2 chips, as they usually have 8 pins. To link between the 2 bulks?

I think this definitely closes the question if the GD32 chinese Cortex M4s is a clone / relicensing of ST topic.
