Supervisor log contains messages related to inactive/not started add-ons

I have have installed the duckdns add-on but have not started it. Nonetheless I see frequent messages in the supervisor log for requests to two secrets that are used in the configuration for the duckdns add-on.

The messages in the supervisor log are:

2024-06-01 10:46:08.514 INFO (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant.secrets] Request secret duckdns_domain
2024-06-01 10:46:08.515 INFO (MainThread) [supervisor.homeassistant.secrets] Request secret duckdns_token

My expectation is that there should be no reference to the not started add-on. Is this explainable ?
