That's normal when you use webcal instead of CalDAV.
If you look at the links provided by the green button(s),
on screen they appear as
and when copied, the https may be treated as webcal, e.g.
<http://chandlerproject.org/Projects/WebcalProtocol>; confirms that
Cosmo is read only.
<http://chandlerproject.org/Projects/CosmoArchitecture>; visualises things.

During my tests I don't have multiple accounts enabled and not even the
same events. I create new events specifically for the testing.

I use Chandler Desktop to import an .ics file I generate from another
program. Then I have Chandler Desktop publish the collection to my
server bundle. The server, prior to desktop publishing, has no
collections at all...I delete them prior to publishing.
As a result, I do catch how the subscription URLs change with each new
collection created on the server. However, the CalDav URL doesn't (not
the one provided by the Chandler Server WebApp, but rather on line I
found this one to use: my.domain.com:port/chandler/dav/users/XXXXXX).
