Google Search can show a browse by category for a specific site when you search for that brand. For example, when you search for [eBay], Google may show you some of the categories the sites has that you can shop for.
I am not sure if this is new, but I’ve never seen this before.

Look at the product categories displayed on the mobile SERP. I searched on eBay, and it’s showing the categories along with a search box on the SERP. I am sure this is not a site search box; this layout is visible after the People Also Ask (PAA) section.@rustybrick pic.twitter.com/YLnQnYLDqD
