Look at your html in the browser (View Source). If the extra nofollow is not there it is likely a validator problem. If it is, then something in your site and hosting process is creating that - in other words, 'you' are the problem.
Yep, that's actually how I found it.

It looks like a plugin conflict. RankMath with something else.

Probably it's done via the the_content hook. Just use one of the many plugins that show the hooks in use, and where it originates from. I bet you'll see a plugin hooking into that, and parsing/filtering all links and adding the attribute.

In the crashcourse it is mentioned that "if you can do it in css, you should do it".
It was to increase the speed of your website.

Does this still hold up if you need quite a bit of HTML as well? I would assume yes, because HTML is only some text so I would assume that you need a LOT of it before it becomes worse performance-wise, but I figured it would be better to ask, because once I begin converting my images to HTML I'm pretty sure I won't be willing to go back xD

My images are only 400x400 images in jpg.
But I could replace them using unicode (UTF-8) and css + html.

I think I found my answer:

(TL;DR yes, go with css + HTML)
The article talks about images as well.

Still interested in hearing opinions.
