Cause

This is the expected behavior.

Resolution

HR Skills hierarchy:
1 - "Contains Skills" related list
2 - "sysparm_parentSkill" attribute in the URL

1. Using Skills form:
"Contains Skills" related list represents skills contained in a skill like the name suggest. For example, in OOB instance HR Benefits skill contains HR skill. It may look like HR Benefits is a child skill of HR Skill but it is actually a skill with HR skill (a skill containing HR skill).

2. Using Manage HR Skills:
"sysparm_parentSkill" represents the parent skill, which is HR skill in the above example.

To summarize, the skill "sysparm_parentSkill" points to, will be contained by the new skill created using the Manage HR Skill module.

It can also be visualized how class inheritance is. For example, class A extends class B, now class A contains functions of class B and class B is the parent class.

Internally, the parameter "sysparm_parentSkill" denotes the base skill which will be added to the new skill.
For example in OOB, for Manage IT Skills module the value of sysparm_parentSkill is - "2eb1c2029f100200a3bc1471367fcfe4" which is sys_id of the IT skill. So all new skills created under Manage IT Skills will have IT skill by default.
