That predicate is true if the first preceding sibling has a different name.
This means, first in document order. To test whether the last preceding
sibling (ie. the immediately preceding sibling) has a different name, write

test="self::node()[name(preceding-sibling::*[1])!= name()]">

or equivalently:

test="name(preceding-sibling::*[1])!= name()">
