"host-model" is a CPU type that will be expanded to a named CPU model
and feature list that matches the host's CPU, as reported by the
'virsh domcapabilities' command.

Libvirt actually stores two XML documents for most guests. There is
the persistent config which is the master configuration that exists
even when the guest is stopped. Then their is the live config which
only exists whde the guest is running.

When you ran 'virsh dumpxml' on a running guest, it will show you
the live config, and that has the CPU model expanded to a named
CPU + features, hence you see it reported as 'custom'.

If you run 'virsh dumpxml --inactive' you'll see the persistent
config and that should still report 'host-model'.
