Why is LinkedIn telling me non-existing colleagues “just joined”?

I must admit I haven't quite kept up with all the recent changes on LinkedIn, but this one caught my eye today.

At the bottom of my home page is a section called Just Joined LinkedIn. The list shows a number of companies where I've worked before—but clicking on most of them results in a page saying "We couldn’t find anyone".

Why is this? It seems the service just picks all the companies I've worked with and makes a list out of them regardless of whether anyone from those companies actually exist in the network. It somehow seems to defeat the purpose of the Just Joined.
