Docker processes running constantly

Even when I don’t have any containers running, every second com.docker.slirp.exe and com.docker.db.exe execute (using Sysinternal’s ProcMon tool).

com.docker.slirp.exe creates a new thread and starts a TCP connection with another process on the box, whereas com.docker.db.exe iterates over files in C:\ProgramData\Docker\database.git\refs.

Is this expected?, if so is there a way to tune it down from every second?
