It's not weird, nor is it surprising.

fsck -n is run to check for any "disk errors waiting to happen."
The fact that you see 'errors' when fscking an active file system on a
running system isn't surprising at all.

The 'errors' you saw aren't errors at all, and are perfectly normal.
Notice that fsck is run with -n, so that it doesn't try to 'correct'
