Need Help With Sitemap.XML file

I have a client that is using Yoast for their XML file. Looks like it’s automatically created the master /sitemap.xml index file, which contains a bunch of other sitemaps. However, when I try to upload it to Search Console (because they didn’t even have SC set up), I’m getting errors because the other sitemaps within the index file look like this:

https://www\.example.com/page-sitemap.xml

If I remove the \ after the www it works, but I don’t know why the \ is there to begin with, and I can’t figure out how to remove it from every other sitemap URL within the master sitemap file. Anyone know what this is?
