The form has jumped one more floor on the core, but the recent completed one is still marked as 28. WTF 2 floors, one above the other, both marked with the same number.

the reason is that the jumpform is a modulated system that moves 3 floors up before a transfer beam is instaruled and then the intermediate floors are done while the form moves up the next 3.
Form was made in OZ
2 x 28 might be a mistake

I don't think so, becouse the height of the second "28th floor" is much higher (almost twice the distance between the two 28 numbers then between the other ones) and there is one sign looking like "^" between the two.

Maybe they have reached some kind of mechanical floor of double (or even triple) height. Even construction speed slowed down in this segment.

It just boggles my mind at how massive this tower is. With all these buildings going up at the same time as Burj Dubai I keep forgetting that these are also "supertalls." Love it.

Today morning I saw that the 29th floor was completed and the core form had risen on the 30th one.
