Googlebot is looking for some URLs that have been 301ed long time back
That kind of checking does go on periodically - otherwise a website could change what they do with the URL and it still would be accounted for in the historical way instead of being current.
If it is happening more than usual right now, then it does sound like some kind of a "catch up" happening to bring a data-set more into present time.
