You are not at all alone.
I've seen it for all/many of my packages when using R-devel for quite
a while, at least with

  R CMD check --as-cran  <pkg>

I never got a clue about the reason for the NOTE, but assumed
the CRAN maintainers wanted to see the maintainer address for
some reason, and I had decided to gladly let them see it... ;-)
