profiles in watchlist show a later date for editing than Changes tab?

I try to work on one profile from my watchlist every day. I usually pick the one that has not been edited in the longest time. But I also look at the most recently edited to see if anyone has added something to profiles I edited over the past few days. Today I noticed a slew of profiles that had been edited January 14 - mostly unrelated & ones I didn't recall editing recently. Checking on them, I was right: not only had I not edited them recently, nobody had. For example, two of the profiles that my watchlist shows were edited on January 15, 2015 were Peter Manson and Madeline (Joire) Blanchan. Changes tab for Manson-17 shows last edit as November 4, 2014 & for Joire-1 as December 16, 2014. Was there some kind of server reset on January 14 that would have caused this?

were they added as a parent for  another?   I noticed when that happens the edit dates change
I noticed that in my watchlist yesterday.  I looked at parents, siblings and children to see if anything had changed in them and didn't find any changes, so it is a mystery to me too.
just checked parents/siblings etc. & came up empty there too. Joire-1 has a lot of descendants but for Peter Manson and many of the others, I'm about the only person interested in the profile.
