There is no reason to suspect these were deleted contributions. Indeed, it is unclear whether these entries represent actual contributions at all. See the duplicate bug 40815 for another example.

They're generally real contributions, just ones missing parent ids, from what we can tell usually a side effect of an import or an incomplete update.

Change I7ef562d6 should address this.
