Apps Show I'm Using Them When I'm Not

I got on the Google app recently and looked at my activity. It shows that I have been using apps that aren't even downloaded to my phone. For example, it shows that I have used the samsung messages app with an orange icon recently when my default messaging app is messages with a blue icon. It also showed that I had Duo downloaded and had two numbers blocked as well, and I hadn't even downloaded that app. What causes this and how can I fix it

Do you have a Samsung phone. I'm pretty sure Samsung preloads their own apps in the devices
