MacBook overheated during sleep with weird date in the output of "Wake reason"

I bought my MacBook Pro 13 inch with Touch Bar 2018 few days ago. Last night I put it to sleep and kept it in my bag, however, in the morning it was very hot. I googled that topic and realized that it is a common problem. My concern now, that when I used the command: log show --style syslog | fgrep "Wake reason" in the terminal, I got a long list of wake up reasons. The first two reasons were as follows:
2018-09-20 06:32:08.605998-0700 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleTopCaseHIDEventDriver) [HID] [ATC] AppleDeviceManagementHIDEventService::processWakeReason Wake reason: Host (0x01)
2018-10-26 15:33:38.260802-0700 localhost kernel[0]: (AppleTopCaseHIDEventDriver) [HID] [ATC] AppleDeviceManagementHIDEventService::processWakeReason Wake reason: Host (0x01)

I already opened and activated my sealed Macbook first on 26.10.2018, therefore, I wonder why the first result on 20.09.2018 was returned in the output. It is one month before purchasing and activating the Macbook. When I reentered the same command again in the terminal I got the same result but without that one on 20.09.2018.
Does anybody experience that before?

Can anyone help and provide explanation for this weird result.

Thanks in advance
