Hmmm
I would guess that the tube was stretched out like a balloon inside the tire, and with no air pressure it relaxed into that appearance of kinked position

I like to use Talcum powder to allow the tube to slide in the tire casing

I am careful not to use powders containg corn starch in place of talc because corn starch liquefies when heated and gets weird and gummy, its OK on a babies butt but not optimum in a tube tire
