DevTo - New Users Automatically Added To Followers List

I am not sure if I am mildly delusional or when a new user joins dev.to, they automatically get added to my followers list.

I got like 10 -12 new followers in the last day or two. I have never had any contact with them and when I visit their profiles, they are mostly blank besides their name and the date they join 3/27-3/28(today).

Am I missing something? Or people who just joined dev.to really begin their journey by following others?

As part of the sign up flow I believe dev shows a smattering of users who they might be interested in following. You must happen to be on that list right now and thus some people decide to follow you
