Anyone ever seen a joint like this before?

Yes. I used this notch on some of the beams in my house. Used a notch much more complicated than this for some of the rafters.
You can learn the methods via Norwegian timber framing.

You see these all the time in timber framing. Commonly called a beveled scarf joint.

Typical joint used by the Japaneese for years.
There are several styles and types
any book on Japanese joinery will show these.
Very nice and strong.

What’s a nice joint doing in a place like this?

Do you turn the other half of the beam around and cut them at the same time?
