Does it redirect old sitemap URL ?

Yes, it does redirect all sitemap URL to homepage URL (301 redirect). It prevents bad 404 for Google and other search engines.

Can I redirect to another URL ?

Yes, you can use a filter for that :

apply_filters( 'seomix_core_sitemaps_redirect_target', $home, $current_url );

$home is the default redirect URL
$current_url is the current 404 sitemap URL being processed
Exemple usage :

add_filter( 'seomix_core_sitemaps_redirect_target', 'seomix_function' );
function seomix_function( $home, $current_url ) {
    return "https://shiny-new-url.fr";
}
