Olaf, which project / package is it exactly you are seeing this?

There is nothing you need to change on the workers. It only needs to be
in prjconf IIRC:

VMinstall: kernel-obs-build

And it needs to be available in the package repositories.

What version of OBS is PMBS running?

That should not be necessary.

But then the config of PMBS looks sane AFAICT, so right now I cannot
really tell why it does not seem  to apply the prjconf from
openSUSE.org:openSUSE:Factory correctly.
OTOH, this is not the first time, that I have experienced strange
ordering issues in OBS regarding which config is taken from where (I
would call them bugs, but opening github issues against such things in
OBS is totally useless unless you can present a 100% reliable
step-for-step reproducer, without it everything that does not happen on
opensuse.org will be dismissed as "not a bug, you're doing it wrong").
