pageviews reported for base URL without GA tracking code?

i don't know if this is the right place to ask ... but I've noticed something peculiar on one of my domains. i'd registered the domain quite a while ago and created a GA property for it but had not gotten around to actually putting the tracking code on the site until a couple of weeks ago - i'm now seeing historical data from months/years ago - the site is just a landing page (base URL) plus a 'thanks' page.

 

does GA gather data for pageviews on the base URL even though the tracking code is not installed?

@Michaela S Is you site based on a commercial platform like wix, or squarespace and such?

@Julia_Muller no, it is a self-hosted wordpress site.
