Barcelona also has a Fira, with a cartouche which appears on autovía signs:

Some signs also refer cryptically to a "Zona Franca ZAL"--zona franca being a free trade area while ZAL is the Catalan abbreviation for zona d’activitats logístiques (freight hub?).

It would seem so (the scenic mountain in question being Montjuïc).

Why would they do that in Madrid? I can imagine that they have some Arabian signs on the southcoast, but in Madrid? Is there an Arabic neighbourhood or sth?

Exactly, thousands and thousands of Moroccan cars during the summer drive across Spain to get to Algeciras and from there to Morocco by ferry.

Not only from Madrid, you can see the first sign in Arabic a few km after crossing the border with France

If you see the map, you'll notice that there are 2 M-30 in the south, one of them (above) is a bypass that skips A-4 and A-42 and is the one that you have taken... and the other is the one have "always" has been there, you can take it following the white signal (the one that is also in Arabic), but it also goes underground a few km ahead (google should have made underground photos better ).
