 Replying to [comment:3 RavanH]:
 > This ticket is for WordPress 5.5 so this may have changed but
 `sitemap.xml` is not part of the WordPress core sitemaps. Not in 5.9
 anyway... It redirects to `wp-sitemap.xml`

 Thanks for testing! It does issue a 302 redirect, but also sends a
 `Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8` header, which is exactly what the
 ticket is about. This still happens in current trunk.

 > I verified the Content-Type headers for the index on `wp-sitemap.xml`
 and all sitemaps but always get `application/xml; charset=UTF-8`.

 This is also mentioned in the ticket, the header is indeed correct on
 actual sitemaps.

 Given the lack of traction in the last 18 months, it looks like this might
 be an acceptable edge case and is not going to be addressed at this time.
 Feel free to reopen if there is still interest in working on this further.
