Your guess is right, the updates are in disabled repos (at least mine all are), but they are packages for which an update exists.

Coincidence. Yum cannot know that there are updates in repos which
are not enabled.

If the repos were enabled at one time and the data is still available it can be checked, and of course yum knows when/if the package installed came from a repo which is not currently enabled. Or perhaps that's why it's read, given the habit of "upgrades" to break working software, I rarely upgrade anything other than security fixes if the package "works for me" as I use it.
