Likely because these minor modes were converted to use
define-minor-mode, but not removed from minor-mode-list.

define-minor-mode (conditionally) calls add-minor-mode, which does

  (unless (memq toggle minor-mode-list)
    (push toggle minor-mode-list))

so minor modes defined with define-minor-mode will end in the list.
For preloaded minor modes, that's already so:

 emacs -Q --batch --eval "(princ (length minor-mode-list))"  => 30

There are 300+ instances of "(defun .*-mode " in the sources. Not all
are really modes, and many are major modes, but surely there are still
unconverted minor modes.
