There are 2 common reasons for this:
1 - an import with a partial failed upload that hasn't been cleaned
up. Most of the early orphan nodes have been mechanically removed.
2 - The license change redaction process may have left these nodes
when the attached way was redacted.
If the standalone nodes are recent, don't delete them for at least 2
weeks in case an approved import is in process and will resume later and
need to use those nodes. Also be sure they are not contained in a
relation (I'm not sure how clearly all editors show relation membership).
