And that links to https://www.7-zip.org/sdk.html , in the download there see the DOC folder for documentation? I really can't figure out how that somehow 'sends you back to python's lzma'...

I'm not entirely correct, though. Because Unarchiver likely uses this compression algorithm by calling directly into the API. And there is an open-source implementation for it: lzfse/lzfse.
What are some alternatives?
zstd - Zstandard - Fast real-time compression algorithm
LZ4 - Extremely Fast Compression algorithm
ZLib - A massively spiffy yet delicately unobtrusive compression library.
brotli - Brotli compression format
Snappy - A fast compressor/decompressor
LZHAM - Lossless data compression codec with LZMA-like ratios but 1.5x-8x faster decompression speed, C/C++
LZMAT - git mirror of LZMAT (http://www.matcode.com/lzmat.htm)
Minizip-ng - Fork of the popular zip manipulation library found in the zlib distribution.
