Re: EU Member with Swiss Partner (not married) Residence Permit

It may have something to do with the original permit which is what is called a "concubine" permit which is used for couples not in a recognised relationship, i.e. married or same sex registered partnership. Under normal family reunification, although the main permit holder must earn enough to support their spouse, they're not required to be financially responsible for them for 5 years, even if the marriage breaks down. This is one of the conditions of the concubine permit so that may be why he's been issued with a new permit, rather than just changing the original one. He got an L because it's a short term contract. Just my guess though.
