Is LinkedIn Mistakenly Passing Off Your Search Information?

I have a website and I have it in my LinkedIn profile. Recently I have noticed a few visits from LinkedIn to my website. But the strange thing is, the referer URL contained in one case the name of a person I know and in another case, the name of a person I don’t know. It’s not clear to me, whether the name in the URL is the name of the person searching for other people and visiting to their website, or the name of a profile from whom a person visited my profile and then to my website. Whatever it is, it made me concerned about it a bit.
