The systemlibs seems to be a move for 12.1.0_r7+, which is why I wouldn’t expect it to be referenced in the r4. In r4 that library comes from a different repo, which is referenced in the r4 manifest.

Appologies for my confusion Michael, I can now see you’re right.
It looks like the p/a/C/lib android-platform-12.1.0_r4 tag is ahead of the android-12.1.0_r7 tag, whereas the android-platform-12.1.0_r3 tag is prior to it (a-p-12.1.0_r3 is at the same point as a-12.1.0_r3,4,5,6) . It seems the problem stems from the manifest diff between a-p-..._r3 and a-p..._r4 being a simple tag name change inside the manifest and not replicating the changes from the changes from a-12.1.0_r6 to r7 which adds the relevant repo.
Unfortunately the a-..._r6 to a-..._r7 manifest change is a single CL which mixes the adding of the new repo with the a-... tag change, so it’s not a simple CL cherry-pick of the CL which adds the new repo either.
It might be worth one of the Googlers taking a look, I’m not sure if the current recommended strategy would be to merge a CL which adds the repo and move the tag (so a-p-..._r7 points to a valid, compiling, tree), or whether merging a CL and tagging an a-p-..._r8 would aligned with current best practice.
