I see this issue as a follow-up of PEP 3151 which started to uniformize IOError, OSError and many variants that we had in Python 2.

socket.timeout was introduced as a subclass of TimeoutError according to:

In Python 3.9, socket.timeout and TimeoutError are subclasses of OSError but are different. I agree that it was confusion.
