I’ve heard of code tests in interviews, sure, but then ALSO providing a code *sample*??

I’m interviewing with a company and was asked to do a code test. They liked my work and now I’m passing on to the next round which consists of a 5-hour panel interview. Here’s the kicker though: they want me to provide a code sample (so that’s in addition to the code test I already did. It was extremely extensive, btw).

I’ve never in my life heard of providing a SQL code sample too. All my stuff has always been owned by my employer and of course unethical to take with me. Hell, if I even remotely tried a move like that at my last job (where our USB slots were disabled, gmail and the like were blocked, etc) I’d be perp walked out the building. That leaves the other option being that I provide code developed for personal reasons. I simply don’t have anything like this that already exists so would have to create something new. But isn’t that, uh, kinda what the purpose of the original code test was?? What’s the freaking point here?
