What are the *other* lines in pg_hba.conf?

There aren't any. The likely explanations are that (1) some earlier
line in pg_hba.conf is capturing the connection, (2) you are looking
at the wrong copy of pg_hba.conf, (3) you edited pg_hba.conf but
forgot to SIGHUP the postmaster, (4) you have a ~/.pgpass file on
the client side that is silently supplying a password in some of
these cases.
