Yes ‘apt’ is part of the package available on Fedora 37 in my case, but no repository or files in /etc/apt/ is installed or configured.

This is the documentation related to ‘apt’ on Fedora

Why is APT in the Fedora repositories?
APT can not be used to install packages on Fedora, you have to use DNF instead.
The apt command on Fedora used to — until Fedora 32 <https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Move_apt_package_from_RPM_to_DPKG_backend> — actually be APT-RPM, which basically mapped normal apt commands so that they worked with Fedora’s RPM package management system.
However, APT-RPM is unmaintained, broken, and insecure, and so was dropped in favour of shipping the actual Debian APT software. Since APT exclusively deals with .deb packages, the aptcommand can no longer be used to manage Fedora packages. Its purpose is now purely as a tool for people building packages for Debian-based distributions on a Fedora system.
