Validator does validate what it receives, and when validating by URI, there
*is* an empty optgroup, you can verify it with the "Show source" option:

When I load the site in Firefox, the empty optgroup is not there, so the target
site probably serves different versions to different user agents depending on
some criteria, and perhaps you used code retrieved by a browser that didn't
receive the empty optgroup when validating by direct input.
