In a recent update, the Raspberry Pi OS installed a Microsoft apt repository on all machines running Raspberry Pi OS without the personís or adminís knowledge. Every time a Raspbian device is updated by having this repo, it will ping a Microsoft server.
I don't own a Raspberry, but still...

That was my first thought too. According to some of the comments it's not "as bad as it seems".
