Why does this genitive noun end with a vowel u? Other instances of genitive qabl uses the vowel i apparently

The noun is only declineable (becomes explicitly "majroor" by taking a kasrah) after the preposition (harf jaar) when it is "mudhaaf" at the same time. If not, as in this case, it is "mabny" but even with the dhammah ending it still considered to be "in the position of jaar" because of the preposition preceding it.
